Justin Timberlake has released the video for the second single off his new album the 20/20 Experience, “Mirrors.”
Directed by renowned music video director Floria Sigismondi, the eight-minute-plus clip starts with a loving dedication to JT’s grandparents Sadie and William who had actually passed away late last year. More than half of the lengthy clip tells the story of their relationship, from teenage courtship to married life and well into their old age.
The video also portrays the grief that Sadie had gone through upon William’s passing, mourning the loss of a loved one she had been with for more than 63 years, as she went through his things and recounted memories shared over the years.
The first half is the story of two lovers told using flashbacks/forwards of the couple through the decades. The second half is Justin Timberlake in a hall of mirrors.
