Two quick thoughts on this one. First of all, if I was to be making a list of the three most butt-ugly records of recent years (admittedly, an odd way to spend one's time), this one would be on it, along with Rihanna's "Umbrella" and that "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" Beyoncé crap.
Also, as I think I've said here before, I find it really difficult to credit the recent Gen-Y embrace of Timberlake as some kind of cool all-around entertainer as anything other than a post-ironic joke that I'm not getting. Kind of like the earlier slacker crowd vogue for Tony Bennett .
In any case, as always a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded to the first reader who gleans the clip's relevance to theme of tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.
