Singer Justin Timberlake has a promising career as an actor, but what he really wants to do is direct... tequila ads. Timberlake, 29, has made his directorial debut with three commercials for 901 Silver Tequila. Watch the video below!
We have to say, the commercials look great. They're sleek, stylish and provocative. But the ad campaign itself is a little confusing, don't you think?
We understand the overall message: this is a classy tequila, not the kind you use for body shots. But the wordy monologues don't make a whole lot of sense -- at least, not in the context of drinking tequila. It's hard to say if that's Timberlake's fault, though; he didn't make the ad campaign, he's just making it look good. We actually think he did the best job on the third, super-sexy one (if you're not at work, click here to see it).
The tequila's website has several making-of videos, which show Timberlake in director mode (he has an adorable habit of stroking his beard while he's thinking). We wonder if this experience will lead him into bigger directing jobs. After all, some of Hollywood's most successful directors started out hawking products on TV -- including David Fincher, director of the upcoming film The Social Network, starring -- that's right! -- Justin Timberlake.
