Justin Timberlake's 'TKO' Video Is a Knockout (Video)
Elvis Presley's granddaughter Riley Keough co-stars in the singer's latest offering.
[Warning: Spoilers ahead.]
Justin Timberlake's new video for "TKO" is a knock-down, drag-out good time, with the singer getting into a bit of a mess with co-star Riley Keough (Elvis Presley's granddaughter) in a slickly produced and thematic seven-minute clip.
Written by Timberlake and director Ryan Reichenfeld, the "TKO" clip splices scenes from a cushy loft -- where Timberlake and Keough engage in various adult activities -- and a not-too-distant future where the singer is roped behind a moving truck driven on a dusty road by his lady.
Whatever JT did to end up in such a bad spot is unclear -- Keough does deliver a cast-iron skillet to the star's cranium, so we assume something pretty god-awful. Through it all, Timberlake keep his chin up and continues to sing even while being dragged to his demise.
"TKO" is Timberlake's latest single off The 20/20 Experience (2 of 2), which earlier this month became his second album to top the Billboard 200 this year, selling 350,000 copies in its first week.
