Commercial Break: Timberlake's tequila ad leaves us in the dark

30 July 2010

Justin Timberlake then. He’s come a long way from his inauspicious beginnings as a member of New Kids On The Block or Backstreet Boys or 5ive or whoever it was.

These days, he’s a highly regarded actor, singer, poet and possibly even a tree surgeon, we’re not sure. What we are sure of though, is that he’s now got his own brand of tequila, infused with some of his own body fluids (note to self: check this before publication) and the man himself has even directed the ad for the aforementioned booze drink.

Sadly, he seems to have forgotten to order any lighting, something that is pretty much essential for the budding film-maker. Plus, the girl in the ad disappears out of shot right at the end, so we don’t get to find out what happens. We think she ties the man’s shoe lace. To be honest, it's so dark in there, we haven't got a clue what's going on.

    What a load of wank. Her speech is a clunking translation of Sun Tzu or something, nothing to do with anything in the ad. It cuts in the middle of a focus pull from the glass to the bloke which looks really amateurish and naff. Basically it's crap but everyone's seen it, because someone famous directed it, badly, Job done. Admittedly she is buff. But the bloke isn't Justin Timberhead, So BW aren't implying anything except that they were watching the wrong ad or have linked to the wrong ad. What with this and the 'joke' about the Bluetooth dongle.... are you texting this copy in from the beach or something?

What do you think?
