His come-and-go Southern accent was an eyebrow-raiser, and his hungry-eyed stare from the very first “Twilight” movie freaked us out something fierce. But now, Jackson Rathbone, all is forgiven! Because here’s our new favorite member of the Cullen family—who, coincidentally, devotes his off-screen time to musical pursuits in a band called “100 Monkeys”—playing a mysterious instrument that looks sort of like a rectangular banjo and delivering all the one-liner nominees from this year’s MTV Movie Awards… in song.
“I wanna get chocolate wasted!” he warbles. “If you were the inventors of Facebook, you’d have invented Facebook!”
Jackson’s musical montage includes every award-nominated line from last year’s best movies, from “The Social Network” and “Grown Ups” to “Easy A” and “Inception”. Random? Maybe a little! But watch the video, and then just try tell us there’s a better way to give these zingers the promo they deserved. (Hint: You can’t. There’s not. Musical montage for the win!)
The MTV Movie Awards air Sunday, June 5 at 9/8 C.
