Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z are best-dressed BFFs in their “Suit & Tie feat. JAY Z” video.
What would be the best Valentine’s Day present ever? Aside from a hunky, tall, rich boyfriend who will take us on an unlimited shopping spree to Barney’s? Oh, right, it’s Justin Timberlake’s official “Suit & Tie feat. JAY-Z” video! As in, the very thing we’ve been fantasizing about ever since we were legally* obligated to watch Justin getting dressed in his “Suit & Tie” lyric video (*technically not true, but we COULDN’T wait to)! Maybe today won’t be so bad after all.
Watch Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie feat. JAY Z” video after the jump.
Slated as the first single off Justin’s forthcoming The 20/20 Experience, JT’s new video was directed by none other than “The Social Network”’s David Fincher (SEAN PARKER REUNION!). And while we were expecting colorful vignettes of a chivalrous Justin holding an umbrella over his boi4Lyfe, Jay-Z, instead we got a superslick, black-and-white video featuring JT and Jigga looking so hip, they’re practically redefining the meaning of the word.
Both dressed to the nines in their perfectly tailored suits, Justin and Jay smoke themselves some fancy cigars, hit the studio for a little recording sesh, then smoke some MORE cigars as they effortlessly take on an old-school speakeasy club performance. And then there’s that crucial moment at the top of the video where we see the two dudes hanging at home like total bros, eatin’ some cereal (Cap’n Crunch, perhaps?), and watching the game! We’d also be remiss if we didn’t mention that 10-second moment where Justin shows off some *NSync caliber dance moves on a water-soaked floor, which sorta channels the rain scenes in Rihanna’s “Umbrella.” It’s all pretty perfect, and we PRAY TO THE HEAVENS ABOVE that the Jay-Z and Justin tour rumors are true AND that the duo plan to reenact the cereal-eating scene LIVE ON STAGE!
