Michael Cera‘s character, the Allan doll, jokes … “Not one person would care if Allan was in the real world, in fact, it’s happened before. All of NSYNC — Allan. Yes, even him.”
Joey’s rolling with the punches here … he’s the first to admit everyone in the band, including Justin Timberlake, have all had their Allan moments … and he’s all about self-deprecation, so he can laugh it off no problem.
What’s more, Joey tells us the reference means NSYNC is still relevant in 2023 … so he’s taking it as a huge compliment.
Props to Joey for tipping his cap to “Barbie” … he’s clearly got a good sense of humor.
