Justin Timberlake Gets Dragged To His Demise In ‘TKO’

Justin Timberlake's second obvious money grab of the year worked out in his favor, with the singer snagging Billboard's No. 1 spot when The 20/20 Experience Part 2 of 2 dropped last month. And JT's showing no signs of quitting as he's released the video for the less than great single "TKO." The clip finds the singer and his video lady, played by Riley Keough (better known as Lisa Marie Presley's daughter and the granddaughter of Elvis), sharing a few steamy moments until Riley lives out my fantasy and hits JT upside his head with a frying pan. From there, she ties JT to the back of a pick-up truck and drags him through the beautifully shot desert at night, eventually hopping out of the driver's seat and watching as the truck, with Justin still in tow, drives of a cliff. While I have no qualms about not being a fan of this song -- or Timberlake in general -- I have to give this visual a thumbs up. It's stylish cinematography and semi-shocking plot managed to hold my interest despite my dislike of the song, which is saying quite a bit. You too can find a bit of joy in JT's video demise when you peep the clip after the bounce.
