As you might have expected, Justin Timberlake’s Comic-Con experience was the same blend of raw geekiness and amazing smooth-ity that makes him our fantasy nerd boyfriend. While at the convention last week promoting his upcoming sci-fi thriller In Time, the singer/actor teamed up with Esquire reporter Chris Jones to dole out secretly sexy hugs while dressed as Sesame Street characters. “If you were at Comic-Con yesterday, and you took a picture with a sketchy Bert and Ernie… I was Bert. Justin Timberlake was Ernie,” Jones tweeted afterwards. People probably should have been tipped off when they saw a generic Ernie costume at a sci-fi/fantasy convention. Or when that same Ernie started radiating such intense sexual mojo, any person wearing a sexy Storm Trooper costume lost consciousness.
“His idea. Also had Elmo and Cookie Monster available. We thought Bert and Ernie made for better bonding,” Jones revealed on Twitter. “I would pay good money to see the faces of the teenage girls who had no idea Justin Timberlake’s arm was wrapped around them.” Well, they were probably just happy to have anyone‘s arm wrapped around them. This is Comic-Con, after all.
