Turns out the clips Justin Bieber‘s been teasing of his new music video for “Boyfriend” have been just that — a tease. The highly anticipated video debuted in full this time on Thursday (May 3) evening. And all those sneak peeks were packed into a 30-second video within the video, which two girls are watching on an iPhone before Biebs rolls up in a convertible to reenact some scenes from”The Fast and the Furious.”
Naturally a dance party breaks out among some scantily clad ladies hanging around some equally hot sports cars while Justin gets some one-on-one time with his girl in the video, who looks an awful lot like his real-life girlfriend Selena Gomez. Then he’s got to strum his guitar a little and get some drift racing out of his system before cozying back up to his lady friend.
The video definitely isn’t the stuff of sweet teen pop music, but the more mature look (no more Bieber bangs!) and more mature sound suit the 18-year-old.
Check out the video for yourself below:
We’d be amiss to ignore the fact that this concept for “Boyfriend” strikes a significant similarity to *NSYNC‘s “Girlfriend” video (a fact which Sway even points out to Bieber during his Q&A). Does this make the two videos a couple?
