Justin Bieber Arranges To Have Girlfriend Abducted In Creepy “What Do You Mean?” Video: Watch
From the star-studded Instagram countdown to the innovative lyric video, everything about Justin Bieber’s “What Do You Mean?” campaign has been spot on. Until now. Directed by Brad Furman, the stylish visual is more disturbing than sexy thanks to an unnecessarily elaborate plot that finds the 21-year-old trying to patch up his relationship by organizing to have his girlfriend abducted. And they say romance is dead!
Of course, the whole thing turns out to be predictably vanilla [spoiler alert] when Justin reveals that the whole being bound-and-gagged business was just a fancy ruse to take her to an underground (literally) rave. He’s come a long way since “Baby,” that’s for sure! “What Do You Mean?” is an impeccable pop song and really deserved a less problematic visual. Watch it up. Personally, I’m sticking with the lyric video.
