Timberlake, like Lady Gaga or Christina Aguilera, has serious musical chops. Thicke is a charismatic pop artist who wanted to write a fun album, hired Pharrel, and the two of them came up with a super catchy song. The guy deserves his success, IMO, but he isn't in the same category as Justin Timberlake.
If you'd like to see Timberlake showing some depth, this video is a good one.
I've never seen this video, thank you for posting. Although I prefer Buckley's version of that song, I haven't heard or seen anything from Timberlake I haven't enjoyed. He is a truly talented entertainer.
For the parody in the OP, I actually found it more offensive than the original. The femdom tone is definite, and not the issue with me.
It's the hypocrisy that I have a problem with.
Either way, the naked women in the original and half-naked men in the parody were enjoyable to look at.
