The best and worst bits of Justin Timberlake's Suit and Tie video

I thought we'd all decided this song was awful and moved on but, no, Justin's still plugging away with it.

Today we get the official release of the video. It's in black and white, of course, to drive home the totally joyless "hey guys, I'm a musician" seriousfacedness of Justin's comeback. But you can't keep a charismatic performer down - so the fun occasionally creeps in. Here's how it pans out.


Our hero is in the recording studio "laying down" some intense "jams".
This, ladies and gents, is where the magic happens.

Look, Justin is lighting up a fag. Because as we all know, smoking = maturity.

Justin is conducting the horn section.
This song, about wearing both a suit and a tie, is deeply personal and heartfelt.
He must ensure that these highly-paid session musicians accurately convey his artistic vision.

Random and wholly unnecessary exploitation of women.


Mr Timberlake is wheeled into work on a bed by two flunkies.
I think we can all agree this is awesomeballs.

Jay-Z checks his flies. "Little Hova" is not on show.

Good God, the boy can dance.


So there you have it. An uneven, confused video for an uneven, confused song. But it's always worth watching Justin Timberlake "do his thing". Has the 21st Century produced a more charismatic performer? I don't think so.
