Most know David Fincher got his start directing music videos for stars like Madonna, George Michael, and Aerosmith. Few know that he’s dabbled in the format even after making the leap to films, having helmed the all-CGI (though very realistic-looking) video for Nine Inch Nails’ “Only.”
Well, Fincher, having perhaps whetted his appetite with the intro credits to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, is back in the realm of music videos, after it has been announced that he’s helming Justin Timberlake’s “Suit and Tie” video.
Here’s the song with a lyric video. For a second, I actually thought this was Fincher’s final product, which is either a slam on Fincher or a testament to the amateur production values realized in the digital age. Maybe both.
