However the way that Timberlake was brought to tears is what makes this one special, it was on stage, from a gift, given by a fan. A 10-year old fan. Yep, JT is still the best.
|Turns out, pretty cool person.|
Here's the setup: Timberlake got a present from a 10-year-old boy who told him he's been a fan of his since he was two years old. Timberlake opened the present to discover a bow tie. And that's when he went all mushy.
"Hey man, greatest gift ever," he told the boy. "Because a gentleman can never have too many bowties."
"I love you, kiddo," he said, walking away and wiping his eyes. "Shit, that got me."
I do acknowledge that this is probably the most poorly shot video we have ever featured. I have no idea why the hell the whole thing is sideways and apologize for the crick in your neck you're about to get from watching this (but trust me it is worth it). I hope sideways shooting doesn't become a thing from now. Vertical phone filming has already turned family members and close friends against each other. This could tear our whole society apart.
Anyway, check it out:
See? Even famous celebrities get choked up by the magic nature of children.
Goon on ya Mr. Timberlake.
