David Fincher Directs Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z

David Fincher got his start in music videos, and he directed Justin Timberlake in The Social Network. So perhaps this new collaboration should not be terribly surprising. But it's still a treat.

And just as the song, "Suit and Tie," echoes Timberlake's earlier recordings, this video, with its stylish and retro black-and-white look, recalls earlier Fincher videos—in a good way. Enjoy.
