Justin Timberlake, Ellen hunt for real couple in 'Not a Bad Thing' vid

Posted on

Did you recently get engaged on a Long Island Rail Road train? If so, A) that sucks and B) Justin Timberlake and Ellen DeGeneres are looking for you!

On her show today, Ellen debuted a new video for JT’s 20/2o Experience single “Not a Bad Thing.” Tthe whole thing is couched in a wacky premise: Timberlake is trying to hunt down a real-life couple whose betrothal occurred on the LIRR to the tune of (yep) “Not a Bad Thing.”

Timberlake himself isn’t actually in the clip, but it does feature two “documentarians” who use everything from hashtags to door-knocking to track down the mysterious commuter-rail lovebirds. Also, a number of other couples are brought in to tell us How Awesome Love Is.

Check out the unorthodox video below:
