Director Anthony Mandler gets cinematic for Justin Beiber‘s “As Long As You Love Me” music video. As we saw in the trailer released not long ago, the short film portrays Justin falling in love, only to find his girlfriend’s father, played by tough guy Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs, Donnie Brasco, Sin City), far from approves. “I don’t want to know you. You need get in your car and leave and don’t come back ’cause if you do, it’s not gonna be good for you,” he commands, before things get ugly in the ending.
It’s a little over the top for a teen romance, but I guess that’s the cringe worthy norm for Bieber and his audience. Oh, and Big Sean – with his incredibly boring verse – makes no sense whatsoever in the plot. Enough critique from me, though, watch for yourself below.
“As Long As You Love Me” is taken from Justin’s Believe album, which is out now.
