Josh Duhamel sure knows how to impress the ladies.

Early during his courtship with Fergie, the "Transformers" actor told her about his role as an extra in the music video for Christina Aguilera's 1999 debut hit, "Genie in a Bottle."

It peaked Fergie's interest.

"He told me that on our first date," the Black Eyed Peas member and "New Year's Rockin' Eve" co-host told Yahoo Music during an exclusive interview. "It was quite hilarious, and I went home, and I watched the video and saw him on there."

Fergie talks Josh's "Genie in a Bottle" cameo at :40 mark:

In the video, Josh portrays a studly partygoer at a beach house. He hops off the deck out back, and leads a group into the night.

Though his performance was brief, it made a good impression on Fergie, who he wed in 2009.

"I think it's great," Fergie said about his video model chops. "Hey, he moved on up, you know. On a video to doing feature films."

Also during the interview, Fergie talked writing new music and anticipating creating new family traditions. In August, she and Josh celebrated the birth of their first child, son Axl Jack.

"Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve With Ryan Seacrest 14" begins at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC and will feature performances from Robin Thicke, Jennifer Hudson, Enrique Iglesias, Blondie, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Miley Cyrus and more.
