Justin Bieber and some of his rando friends made a lip sync video to Carly Rae Jepson's "I Really Like You" song, and it's exactly as terrible as you'd think it would be. First of all, this song is so painfully catchy, that it rivals Friday. Second, the video is filmed with a web cam on a computer and edited with iMovie - that's not even a critique, just a fact. The whole thing is a low budget, poor imitation of Beyonce's 7/11.
The video features Justin, Ariana Grande, Frankie Grande, Lance Bass (wtf), Jeremy Scott (he can do so so so much better), and Kendall Jenner. There's probably more celebs in the video, but the quality of the film is so low-grade that I can't make out their faces. The best part of the whole thing is Ariana Grande singing "Running through the 6 with my woes" - probably the whitest thing I've seen since Coachella.
Tbh, we've all done this. Don't lie - you definitely have gotten really drunk with your friend group and decided to film a music video. Sure, it was probably in 2008 to a Taylor Swift or T-Pain song, but it still happened. You thought it would turn out cute, funny, and endearing. It did not. So I feel you Justin. A- for Effort, C for Execution.
