Andy Samberg isn’t joking about keeping his ‘d–k in a box’ — or in his pants.
The “Saturday Night Live” alum told Playboy Magazine that he’ll never go full-frontal on camera because it will be on the internet forever.
“I don’t think I’d ever do it, because of the Internet,” he told the mag.
“Once you show your d—, that’s the first image that comes up on Google for the rest of your life. I don’t want my d–k on the Internet.”
Samberg — whose profiled in the magazine’s September issue — just came off the hype of his film “Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping” and also a pretty large hosting gig at the 2015 Emmy Awards.

He’s now starring in the hit sitcom “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” which offers viewers a different side of him.
Still, he’s best known for his digital shorts on “SNL” — including one of his memorable “d–k in a box” sketch where he and Justin Timberlake parodied gifting the ultimate Christmas present.
Even with those hilarious antics, some internet commenteres believed Samberg wasn’t all that funny.
“In my third or fourth year at SNL, I made the mistake of looking [at the comments],” he said.

“There was some awful s–t, things that made me think, ‘You’re the only one everyone hates.’ I read one that basically said, ‘He should f—ing kill himself so he can’t procreate.’ That was so harsh that I actually found it funny.”
Once he saw that even Will Ferrell was getting slammed as someone who wasn’t funny, he realized even those he aspired to be were in the same boat.
“Knowing in my heart that he is likely the funniest human being on planet Earth and can do no wrong. That’s when I had this moment of clarity about online comments,” Samberg said. “None of it matters.”
