Justin Timberlake Channels Steve Jobs in Futuristic Music Video for 'Filthy'

The Mark Romanek-directed clip finds the 'Sexy Back' hitmaker channeling Steve Jobs as he presents his latest creation to a welcoming audience.

AceShowbiz - Justin Timberlake is back! The 36-year-old actor/singer has unveiled the first official single off his highly-anticipated album "Man of the Woods" along with its music video. The clip was directed by Mark Romanek, who previously helmed Justin's music video for "Can't Stop the Feeling".

The four-and-a-half-minute clip sees Justin channeling Steve Jobs as he presents his latest creation in front of a welcoming audience. The creation is a humanoid robot that bears a striking resemblance to Justin. During the presentation, the robot starts off performing simple tasks as Justin instructs it from backstage. However, things get a little bit frisky when it starts dirty dancing with a slew of female dancers.

The video also finds Justin belting out the song, singing about hanging out with friends. "No question, I want it/ Fire up, everybody smokin'/ Your friends, my friends," he rhymes over the slappy electro beats. "And they ain't leavin' till six in the morning/ Caught a chill, baby, you the coldest/ Go far, put 'em on notice."

Following "Filthy", Justin will unleash three additional music videos, each with their own "individual style and color" from three different helmers, according to a statement. The three clips will be released every week starting from January 18.

Justin announced his new album on Tuesday, January 2, releasing a teaser clip for the upcoming record. The clip finds the "Sexy Back" hitmaker running around a field and relaxing next to a bonfire. At one point, viewers get to see a glimpse of his wife Jessica Biel and their son Silas. "This album is really inspired by my son, my wife, my family, but more so than any other I've ever written, where I'm from," so he says in the clip. "And it's personal."

"Man of the Woods" will be released on February 2, just two days before his Super Bowl halftime show performance.
