The music video for Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend” was finally released Thursday, revealing that we’ve all been bamboozled.
Or should I say Bieboozled. (Never say that again? OK.)
The many teasers for the video, it turns out, weren’t part of the final product. Instead the video shows Bieber acting out the song’s somewhat ridiculous lyrics: eating fondue fireside, flying around the globe dressed like Buzz Lightyear from “Toy Story.”
Now I’ve Bieboozled you! (Sorry.) The entire scene actually takes place on a city rooftop, where the 18-year-old singer sits in and on a car, plays guitar, dances and touches a scantily clad woman in a way that made me feel like I’m going to jail. The video really drives home the point that the Biebs is a grown-up now. Deal with it?
Watch “Boyfriend” below.
Update: Idolator has alerted us to how similar this video is to the one for ‘N Sync’s “Girlfriend.” Thoughts?
