Justin Timberlake Got Compliments On Twitter By Bribing People With Pizza
Look, I love Justin Timberlake as much as the next Millennial woman who saw *NSYNC perform at the height of her sexual awakening.
But recently, the guy hasn't been hitting quite as many home runs when he steps up to the plate.
I mean, bribing your fans with free pizza, JT? Bro, I don't want to embarrass you, but you're coming off just a tad desperate.
On Tuesday, the 35-year-old singer was looking to promote his new concert film, "Justin Timberlake + the Tennessee Kids," which is now streaming on Netflix.
His promotion plan? Send free pizza to fans... as long as they say something nice about his last tour using his personalized hashtag.
Justin, please! You don't need to bribe us!
Though to be fair, your last song and music video were basically a watered down version of Pharrell's "Happy," Britney Spears has gotten way more press than you this year and this is the first time I've ever heard of your Netflix special.
OK, yeah, maybe the pizza bribe was #justified.
Well, as it turns out, bribery works, because in came the complimentary tweets.
And JT, however desperate, is a true gentleman and stayed good on his word. Look at all these pizzas!
Hmm, looks like these are all cheese pizzas. What, no toppings, Justin? Kind of a cheap bribe, don't you think?
KIDDING, you guys, I'm kidding about all of this. Obviously this is a super cool and nice thing for Justin to do.
And obviously I love him forever and don't think he's being desperate. I mean, c'mon, he's JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE.
HE BROUGHT SEXY BACK.
HE TAUGHT US NOT TO GIVE AWAY OUR LOVE.
HE MADE RAMEN HAIR COOL.
HE ACTED IN A GODDAMN OSCAR-WINNING FILM.
HE PUT HIS DICK IN A BOX.
Yeah, JT will never have to bribe me for anything.
