That poor screen shot. I can only imagine the number of dicks that have been Photoshopped over that banana. So it turns out the video that was released with Justin Timberlake’s new song “Can’t Stop The Feeling” earlier this month wasn’t the official video. Nope, this one is. The one featuring Justin and a whole bunch of wacky characters dancing like no one is watching all around sunny Los Angeles. I hope Pharrell Williams has a good lawyer (“Um…” said Pharrell’s lawyer), because I think I’ve seen this video before. You know what, the Minions might want to call their lawyer too, because I’m pretty sure they own the right to bananas.
I do appreciate the cameo from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s Sweet Dee at the 2:26 mark.
Since the song was recorded for DreamWorks’ Trolls, I would have assumed the video for “Can’t Stop The Feeling” would have featured a few more trolls than just the measly handful that show up on the television wall in the electronics store. How pitiful! Whatever happened to the days of shameless pandering? JT should have been dressed up in an oversized foam troll costume dance dance dance dancing with a bunch of half-naked models wearing plastic gemstone pasties and troll fur merkins. That’s the video I want to see.
Speaking of hustling, here’s Justin and his Trolls co-star Anna Kendrick at Cannes last week. I’m a little disappointed that they didn’t walk the red carpet in 3-foot tall neon funfur troll wigs. But I guess they realized it would have been pointless to try to compete with the reigning queen of the Cannes, Elena Lenina.
