Recently, Vanity Fair posted a hilarious video of Morgan Freeman reading the lyrics of Justin Bieber’s hit song, “Love Yourself,” in a true baritone Morgan Freeman fashion. And the lyrics take a whole different meaning:
“I’m going to do a dramatic reading from a very popular songwriter,” the actor says in the clip’s introduction, without even cracking a smile.
Freeman continues dryly reading the lyrics, glancing back and forth from an iPad to the camera, and injecting wry smiles and slight eye rolls where necessary.
And the best part, of course, comes with the song’s best lyric: “My mama… didn’t like you,” Freeman said, looking up at the camera and pausing for effect. “And she likes everyone.”
