In the new video, a couple is seen over multiple generations. The young couple experiences loss and pain (cue: smeared eyeliner), while the older couple dancers and happens upon a somewhat creepy funhouse (a human photobooth spits out a film strip!).
It turns out the couple in question is actually Timberlake’s grandparents. The video opens with a dedication to William and Sadie. William, Timberlake’s grandfather,passed away late last year. “Mirrors” is refashioned as a retelling of their love story.
Floria Sigismondi, who directed “The Runaways” (starring Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning), helmed the visuals.
