Justin Timberlake's tequila commercial makes me want to drink for all the wrong reasons

Posted on

Is there anything Justin Timberlake can’t do? He sings. He dances. He acts. He was in the Mickey Mouse Club. And now, apparently, he directs tequila commercials! Now, I’m not exactly sure what exactly is going on in this ad: A woman in a skimpy dress is talking very seriously to someone about …. something (empires? cake? “remotest provinces”?). Then all of the sudden, just as you’re wondering whether “remotest” is actually a word — whoops! wardrobe malfunction! — her dress comes off and she appears to engage in a sexual act with a guy who has become inflamed with passion by her weird monotone rambling. It may not make a whole lot of sense, but hey, tequila makes you do crazy stuff, right?

What do you think of J.T.’s tequila ad (embedded after the jump)? Does it make you want to hit the bottle? Do you think Timberlake has a future as a commercial director? If so, what other products would you like to see him bring sexy back to?
