Video of the Day: Justin Timberlake Brings “Sexy Back” in Ragtime

Share this post

This is just awesome…because he gets it. He gets the joke. If we were forced to bracket out the coolest guys in America, Big East-style, Justin Timberlake and James Franco would each earn double byes. Maybe Ryan Gosling, too, but he’s probably only a single bye at this point. Performed last night on the best show in late night (Jimmy Fallon‘s, obviously) featuring the best band in late night (THE ROOTS!), here’s a ragtime barbershop version of JT’s smash hit, “Sexy Back.”

Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
