Happy hump day, everybody! And I don’t mean that as in welcome to Wednesday, the day that gets you over the hump of the middle of the week. What I mean is, get to something hump-able and stay there, because a teaser clip from the music video of Justin Timberlake‘s new song Suit And Tie was just released, and it’s pleasantly titillating. Are you ready? Are you next to something you can HUMP? Okay good, because here it is:
YUM. That was enjoyable. But very brief, so let me flesh it out a little for you. Of course, I don’t have any more information than you do, so this will all be speculation. But I’m a journalist, so all my assumptions have added weight.
SO. In the brief snippet of video we get, we see Justin putting on a suit, so obviously he’s going somewhere fancy, like a wedding or something. OR. Maybe not. Maybe this is all to throw us off. We know JT is all about intrigue, so that’s probably a decoy outfit that he only wears in thirty seconds of the video. In the rest of the video, he plays a young girl torn from her home as a storm approaches New Orleans. The rest of the video follows JT’s character Hushpuppy as she interacts with fantastic beasts in the…southern wild. There’s already Oscar buzz about it.
Okay so I may have gotten some of that wrong, but we won’t know until 6:00am tomorrow morning, when the full lyric video is premiering on MTV, MTVU, and MTV Hits. I guess someone forgot to tell them they don’t show music videos anymore.
