Yes, yes—vampires are very now, very chic. But with all the goofy faces Timbaland is sporting in the video for “Morning After Dark”—which also features singer SoShy—the menacing bloodsuckers aren’t the creepiest thing in the clip.
In the cheesy music vid/short film, a sexy student who’s spending her last week in Italy reluctantly heads off to a party, where she has several encounters with the walking dead. All the while, Timbaland sort of narrates by singing and bulging his eyes for exaggerated emphasis. Well, either that or a swarm of gnats flew into his oculars.
And what a way to try to capitalize on vamp mania—by releasing the music video for “Morning After Dark” following New Moon‘s smash opening weekend.

Nelly Furtado also sings on the version of “Morning After Dark” that will feature on Timbaland’s Shock Value II, which is currently set for a December 4 release. Last week “Crazy Girl,” a track with Justin Timberlake that didn’t make the cut, leaked.
