Robin Thicke had a big, um, 2013. Not only did the man release the album that Justin Timberlake was too famous to make — Blurred Lines — he scored a summer anthem with the Pharrell-assisted titular track, and got a whole lot of people talking with the explicit version of the “Blurred Lines” video (that one handedly made our SPIN’s Year in NSFW list). Oh and, not for nothing, he got twerked on by Miley Cyrus. It’s probably time to celebrate.
Indeed, that’s what the man does in his latest video, for “Feel Good.” He stops to (literally) smell a rose or two, sits behind a spangly piano in a jacket that would’ve done Liberace proud, throws down on the craps table, and line-dances with (noticeably clothed) showgirls. At one point, a bunch of Beats by Dre Pills appear on platters, so while Sophie Muller directs (No Doubt, Sade, Killers) the Vegas-y spectacular, we know who’s picking up the tab.
