On Wednesday, July 21, Lance Bass took to TikTok to play a hilarious prank on his former band-mates... well, at least try to. "They just won't leave me alone! Don't they know how busy I am?? Jeez," Lance captioned the clip, which saw him taking part in the viral "I'm too busy" challenge. Ring a bell?

For those who haven't yet caught it, the trend calls for ringing up a friend and then immediately telling them you're too busy before hanging up. From the Kardashian klan to the Biebers, just about every A-lister has taken part in the hilarious trend. Only Lance's attempt to join in on the fun didn't quite go as planned...

"DidYouJustDenyMe??" the star joked, as his attempt to prank Justin Timberlake took an ironic turn. After successfully pranking NSYNC members Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick, the Sexy Back star ended up with the last laugh after declining Lance's call.

"#TooBusy," Bass explained of the viral exchange. But hey, if there's anything Timberlake's taught us over the years, it's that what goes around comes around - right? All jokes aside, don't worry: there's no bad blood between Lance and his former bandmate.

“lol. We are all still close. Brothers forever!” Lance assured after one fan commented, “are yall still close with Justin? I mean I know he didn’t pick up, but that doesn’t mean yall don’t keep in touch. just curious.” Which, fair point. Safe to say, no one’s tearing up anyone’s hearts here. And we can’t wait to see what other tricks the prankster has got up his sleeves for the rest of us.
