Justin Timberlake's Grandparents Bring Romance to Video for 'Mirrors'

Floria Sigismondi's artful take to long-lasting, sometimes turbulent love

Editor's Pick

Floria Sigismondi, who we last saw directing the androgynous Tilda Swinton for a David Bowie music video, is behind the lens for "Mirrors," the new Justin Timberlake track from "The 20/20 Experience." The video focuses primarily on the love story of a young, then elderly couple, inspired by Timberlake's own grandparents, William and Sadie. Timberlake himself appears only for a bit, toward the end in a bizarre funhouse sequence with a dancer in a strange outfit consisting of a blue-tinged wig and ugly pantyhose.
