Gnarls Barkley: Run video

Justin Timberlake is at something of a loose end, it seems. He keeps cropping up in other people's songs and videos like an over-enthusiastic dad crashing a teenage party and offering to mix up a batch of cheeky vimto.

His latest escapade is on the set of the Gnarls Barkley video, where he plays a hep and happenin' TV host from back in the day. Note the Beat It-inspired leather jacket.

Yes, that's right, Justin still wants to be Michael Jackson...

Gnarls Barkley - Run

The song itself is a pretty funky slab of gospel-soul-psychedelia - recalling the likes of Smiley Faces from GB's debut album. What's great is that this track would never have stood a chance of getting radio play without the head of steam built up by Crazy two years ago. It's good to see an established act that doesn't try to toe the commercial line and instead releases something daring and fresh. I wonder how Run will fare chart-wise?
