Justin Timberlake Made a New Music Video

Is it 2002 again? Did this week really bring us a new Britney Spears video and now, a new music video from Justin Timberlake? The latter is the most surprising since Timberlake recently traded pop superstardom for an acting career, but it comes courtesy of the rock/hip-hop band FreeSol, whose new album Timberlake produced. In this clip for FreeSol's song "Role Model," Timberlake gets things under way with a reedy rap, then cavorts in black and white through a decrepit building while associating with the sort of wasted ladies to whom even Ke$ha might offer a shower and a sandwich. It's intended to be a mere featured appearance on FreeSol's tune, but Timberlake still takes over the music video, and there may be more to come: As the band told Vulture, Timberlake guested on three other songs on the record.
