So the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl.
00:02
And they beat the mighty Patriots
00:04
with a backup quarterback no less.
00:06
But while Nick Foles won the game's MVP,
00:08
there was only one person who gave a perfect performance.
00:11
Justin Timberlake.
00:13
He sang, sort of.
00:14
He danced.
00:15
He played piano.
00:16
And he wasn't involved in any wardrobe malfunctions.
00:18
Although, that bandana was a questionable choice.
00:21
Unfortunately, I had to deal with one annoying friend
00:24
who wouldn't shut up about the Patriots play calling
00:27
while Timberlake thrilled the rest of the planet
00:29
with his many talents.
00:30
Thank goodness for DVR.
00:32
That same friend also kept asking,
00:34
Aren't these N'Sync songs?
00:36
To which I replied no, the man is a genius
00:38
with many hits of his own.
00:39
Educate yourself.
00:41
Sorry, but Justin Timberlake is a national treasure.
00:45
The most disappointing part of the halftime
00:46
was that I didn't bet on JT covering a Prince song.
00:49
Yes, that was a real prop bet.
00:51
You could have gotten 2 to 1 odds on it.
00:53
In retrospect, woulda been a lot better of wagering on that
00:57
than betting on the under for the game.
00:59
Whoops.
01:00
But as Justin says, Cry me a river.
01:03
And overall, between his performance,
01:05
that epic Eli Manning, Odell Beckham commercial,
01:07
and my wife's chili and guac,
01:08
it was still a great night.
01:10
Oh yeah, and seeing the Pats lose wasn't bad either.
01:14
(Can't Stop the Feeling! by Justin Timberlake)
01:23
Hopefully, this is the end of the Patriots dynasty.
01:26
And hopefully, the NFL won't wait another 14 years
01:29
to invite JT back to the big game.
01:31
(funky, deep bass music)
