Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake f/ Chris Stapleton "Say Something" (Arturo Perez Jr., dir.)

Apparently I'm not the only one who considers the Take-Away Show style, defined by La Blogotheque, to be the most effective video for capturing the energy and discovery and beauty of a live performance. Justin Timberlake joins with alt-country savior Chris Stapleton in this elaborate, yet raw and communal and organic one-take stunner directed by La Blogotheque's own Arturo Perez Jr.

Justin Timberlake "Can't Stop The Feeling"

No Trolls to be found in this movie tie-in for the DreamWorks animation flick Trolls — which is indeed about those old Troll dolls that were a fad up until the '90s or so — but we do get a new Justin Timberlake song, presented by the artist himself to a studio filled with friends and fans. It's a good time track, perfect for Timberlake and his fellow Troll voice stars — including Gwen Stefani, Anna Kendrick and James Corden — to sing along with wherever they are.

LOUD VISIONARIES PROFILE: Director Ryan Reichenfeld

Our syndication of The 405's music video series Loud Visionaries continues, focusing on the new wave of music video directors and creatives.

LOUD VISIONARIES: Ryan Reichenfeld

Ryan Reichenfeld is name you should get used to hearing. The man's ambition might exceed his grasp, but by God, he has one hell of a grasp on what he's doing. After Justin Timberlake, Adidas and RAC came calling, a lot of people started tuning into his way of thinking. When The 405's own Elsa Bishop sat down with Ryan, she learned that music videos are only one part of the master plan...

Michael Jackson x Justin Timberlake "Love Never Felt So Good" (Rich Lee, co-dir.)

In a way, there's likely more Michael Jackson in this video than on this posthumous "contemporized" version of a previously unreleased song. Justin Timberlake easily steps into the main role here, keeping a smile on his face and replicating some iconic moves — needs. more. moonwalk. — on some sets that also shout out various MJ video classics, like the "Bad" turnstiles and the "Beat It" pool hall. For good measure, we also get archived shots of the main man in NTSC action, plus lots of fans to dance and smile along to the groove.

Have You Seen This Couple: Justin Timberlake "Not A Bad Thing" (Dennis, Liu, dir.)

The new Justin Timberlake music video isn't really a music video. And it isn't quite a documentary as much as it's the start of a social stunt with a real world component.

The story starts on January 12 when a mystery couple got engaged on the Long Island Railroad with a Justin Timberlake song as the soundtrack (played on a Beats Pill, of course). And now the search is on for this couple, with a hashtag — #haveyouseenthiscouple — posters, appearances and this video, which also features lots of interviews with families and couples about the mysterious ways of love. Know the couple? You email haveyouseenthiscouple@gmail.com, or even call a tipline.

Is this couple truly out there? Is it all just a stunt? Do they exist? Am I cynic? Does it matter?

Justin Timberlake "TKO" (Ryan Reichenfeld, dir.)

Don't go assuming that the footage of Justin Timberlake getting dragged behind a car is a metaphor. Based on what happens between the pop star and his break-up/make-up sex partner, it's clear that she's ready to make sure he goes down for the count.

PS: In a nice twist of pop legacy — I woudn't call it a coincindence since everyone involved is too smart not to realize this angle — Timberlake's co-star is Riley Keough aka Elvis Presley's granddaughter.

Justin Timberlake "Take Back The Night (Live From Hoboken)" (Marc Klasfeld, dir.)

This new Target x Timberlake spot directed by Marc Klasfeld is part music video, part commercial, part live shoot, part documentary and part happening. This underplay at tiny Hoboken, NJ club Maxwells caused lots of news coverage and commotion thanks to Target suddenly announcing the free show just hours before stagetime, drawing thousands in person and a whole lot more action action online...

Jay Z & Justin Timberlake "Holy Grail" (Anthony Mandler, dir.)

There's a last days of Xanadu vibe here, with Jay Z and Justin Timberlake all alone at the top of the world, surrounded by the baubles that come with great wealth and success — an effect that's further emphasized by the periodically slurred-down audio.

Also of note is that this is the first Facebook exclusive premiere, with the video available exclusively via Facebook and giving Jay Z and Justin Timberlake unfettered reach to their combined 42 million followers (which if you know anything about how Facebook posts are limited unless boosted, you know the value of that promo is huge).

And it could be a good case study into whether people care about where or how they watch videos, so long as all the sharing/embedding features they expect are supported.

Justin Timberlake "Take Back The Night" (Jeff Nicholas, Jonathan Craven, Darren Craig for The Uprising Creative, dir.)

And after a clever engagement campaign, Justin Timberlake unveils the "Take Back The Night" video. It's a celebratory clip that takes the pop star through the NYC night — a deserved victory lap for anyone who can can pack Yankee Stadium twice — leading from Uptown Baby to the electric streets of Chinatown. The overall vibe is somewhere between the opening montage for SNL, the Copacabana tracking shot from Goodfellas (that every director seems to want to recreate) and the mid-period Michael Jackson video of your choice.

The Virtual NYC Hunt for Justin Timberlake "Take Back The Night" Begins

There's been a cat and mouse game to every step of Justin Timberlake's 20/20 Experience, with elements either coming completely unannounced, or teased through various clues hidden throughout his web world. This new video for "Take Back The Night" is still just out-of-grasp, but you can check out an interactive map of NYC at takebacktn.justintimberlake.com, which brings you from J-Tim's [ed: Has J-Tim also lost the hyphen like his man Jay Z?] massive Yanee Stadium gigs and into behind-the-scenes of the video, with pop-up styled tidbits about shoot locations and more.

Wanna see the video? Tweet as directed and sit tight. 

It's a smart roll-out, both on a micro level — the twitter gambit virtually guarantees worldwide trending — but if you zoom out you see that Timberlake and his visual/marketing partners at The Uprising Creative — who handled the website(s), the promo clips and even the videos for "Tunnel Vision" and now "Take Back The Night" — have found a way to maintain mystery and heighten expectation in the know everything right now culture of the web.

Justin Timberlake Goes NSFW with New Video "Tunnel Vision"

Justin Timberlake - Tunnel Vision (Explicit)

Yep. Even Justin Timberlake has the NSFW bug. 

Ther are bodies in motion here. One is JT, but the others are naked women, writhing as they emerge from the haze and then as they serve as human projection screens.

Enjoy it on YouTube while it lasts. After that, I think VEVO has another hit to put in their exclusive collection.

Justin Timberlake "Mirrors" (Floria Sigismondi, dir.)

Justin Timberlake - Mirrors

Memories get distorted as if reflected in a funhouse mirror in this ode to enduring love. The centerpiece is an old, synchronous couple who visit a fun house of memories, remembering the ups and downs that brought them closer together, but they pass the ring onto Justin TImberlake for the last last third of this 8+ minute clip so he can navigate his own maze of mirrors.
