Justin Bieber “Yummy” video: eat it up, or lost your appetite?

Justin Bieber’s new video for “Yummy” might make your stomach growl! Here’s a list of all the food I recognize in the video:

Box of Chinese food, water with lemon, bread roll, French fries, gelatin dessert cake  thing, white bread with cheese, cake, lime jello cake, bread cake, fish, shrimp, green peas, croissants, lobster, cheese puffs, strawberries, and much more.

Ok, if you’re stomach’s not growling, you might be feeling queasy… so if you can stomach all 4 minutes of this song, you’ll also notice Justin is wearing a Drew House brand hoodie, which retails under $100, although I couldn’t find the exact sweatshirt on the website. This is Justin’s clothing brand (his middle name is Drew).

Credits in the YouTube video description list “Video Commissioner: Yolande Geralds” … this is the first I’ve ever heard of a video commissioner.

Throughout the video, Justin is wearing a puka shell-styled necklace a la 2000s Kenny Chesney. Why not, I guess.

Justin joined TikTok to promote the single and the video. Downside for Justin- now he’s on TikTok, yet another social platform to keep up with…. and like Betty White said of Facebook, TikTok is probably just another huge waste of time.

I really like the editing of this video, kudos! But that’s where my praise ends.

When anyone asks why I don’t like today’s R&B, I’ll just reference this song. I feel nauseous after listening/watching, and it’s not because of the food. It’s just a terrible song. I rather eat 3-week-old room temperature sushi than hear this song again.

The setup for a fun video is there, lots of food and interesting-looking characters. Why not have a food fight? Why not show off your wife? As it is, we see Justin eating, singing/talking with a mouth full of food, and dancing on a table. It’s just boring. I bet TikTok users came up with something better for this song, but I don’t want to check.

Thanks for stopping by!

A quote from Betty White

It started as a search to find the exact quote from Betty White concerning Facebook. Spoiler alert, she thinks it’s a huge waste of time. I couldn’t help but read more of her statements and came across one that I automatically loved.

“You can always tell about somebody by the way they put their hands on an animal.”

Animal people are simply better people. Try to prove me wrong, I dare ya!

Betty White on Facebook

“Now that I do know what it is, I have to say, it seems like a huge waste of time.”
–Betty White about Facebook, May 2010

So recently a friend of mine challenged me to get my Facebook friends down to 13. To give you some context… I’ve chatted quite a bit with him about the pros and cons of Facebook, he’s never been on Facebook, and he knows I’m competitive. I’ve come down to 40 38 32 31 13 14 18 friends so far and I’m thinking Betty White was right. Trust me, I can waste my time doing much more productive things than Facebook!
