12 Times Justin Bieber’s “I’ll Show You” Music Video Will Make You Nervous
Just two weeks after J. Biebs gave us the gift of "Sorry," he oh-so-generously tossed yet another present our way: Monday, Justin Bieber released “I’ll Show You,” a terrific, Skrillex-produced jam. This song will appear on to-be-released album Purposealongside great tunes "Sorry," "What Do You Mean?" and "Where R Ü Now." Shortly after the dream-like song's Internet debut, the 21-year-old pop star dropped a dream-like music video to go along with the new track. The "I'll Show You" video depicts the "Beauty and the Beat" singer running, jumping, climbing, diving, and rolling around in different gorgeous, otherworldly landscapes.
However, beneath the stunning scenery featured in the music video for “I’ll Show You” lies a nerve-wracking 200-second adventure, à la the video for Britney Spears’s “I’m Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman." The "I'll Show You" clip depicts its protagonist casually chilling on the edges of cliffs, hopping over a menacing barbed fence, and climbing into some ice cold water. Call me a ninny all you want, but all of the daredevil acts featured in the video made me so nervous. Here are all of the times the “I’ll Show You” music video made me yell “BE CAREFUL, BIEBS” in my mind:
When He Takes A Casual Stroll On A Mossy Walkway
Hnnnnngh moss is so slippery. What if he slips? Hnnnnnnngh.
When He Moseys On Out To This Mossy Ledge
Hnnngh please see reaction to the casual mossy walkway stroll. Hnnnnnngh.
When The Wind Turns His Shirt Into A Kite
Hnnnngh what if a strong gust rolls through and snatches up Bieber like a kite? Hnnnnngh.
When He Goes For A Moss Ledge Run
Hnnnnngh I simply cannot with this terrifying, albeit beautiful mossy ledge. Hnnnnngh.
When He Jumps Off Of A Mossy Ledge
HNNNGH DON'T ROLL AN ANKLE/SPRAIN A WRIST/BREAK YOUR BODY. HNNNNNGH.
When He Floats Down A Rocky River
Hnnngh what if he crashes into those rocks? Or a into a waterfall? Or into a school of fish? Hnnnnnngh.
When He Dangles His Feet Off Of The Edge Of A Cliff
Hnnnngh what if that piece of cliff gives way like a cliff from a Wile E. Coyote and Roadrunner cartoon? Hnnnngh.
When He Is But A Small Dot
When He Looks Down From His Cliff Perch
Hnnnnngh the ground is so far away. Hnnnnngh.
When He Skateboards Atop Some Airplane Ruins
Hnnnnngh skating on a slick, cylindrical piece of metal seems like an accident waiting to happen. Hnnnngh.
When He Hurdles Over A Barbed Wire Fence
Hnnnnnnngh what if trousers/socks/t-shirt/sweatshirt/limbs get caught in the barbed wire fence's clutches? Hnnnnnnngh.
When He Goes For A Glacier Water Swim
Hnnnnngh why isn't he wearing a wetsuit? What if he catches a cold? Hnnnnnngh.
Am I a nervous ninny? Yes. Am I overreacting? Probably. Is this video awesome? Definitely.
