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.

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. 

Justin Timberlake "Suit And Tie" (David Fincher, Dir.)

Happy valentines day, from Justin Timberlake and David Fincher.

When we last saw legendary music video director David Fincher working the short-form for the small screen, it was Nine Inch Nails "Only" in 2005. And the difference between that video and this is a perfect example of how doing what's right for the artist and song is really what makes a great video director.

When is a lyric video not just a lyric video? When it has the production values of most ordinary videos, stars the artist himself, and that artist is Justin Timberlake on his first record in seven years. Spoiler Alert: He wears a suit and tie. Also, Jay-Z doesn't make an appearance, but I would think it's a guarantee we'll see him rocking his shit tied best when the real video rolls out.
