The official video for Timberlake’s big comeback single was directed by David Fincher (who last told Timberlake what to do on film in The Social Network) and is chock full of not-cheap Tom Ford suits.
It’s lovely, it’s louche, and it’s in black and white. Give it a watch below.
So according to that video, being on one’s suit and tie s— involves eating cereal while Jay-Z watches a basketball game, playing chess with a model, wearing gigantic bow ties, doing scarf tricks, hanging around with women who do heavily stylized strip teases, and an awful lot of smoking. That sounds about right for a song whose key lyric is “Time for tuxedos for no reason!”
What do you think of the “Suit & Tie” video? Has your opinion of the song changes since it dropped a few weeks back? And what’s your take on Timberlake’s return to music thus far? Get on your type and post s— in the comments.
