Watch: New 'Men In Black 3' Footage Featured In The Otherwise Intolerable Video For Pitbull's "Back In Time"

Since "Men In Black 3" is the continuation of a franchise that started in the '90s, it's no surprise that everything about the movie so far has felt ripped right out the decade. But perhaps no aspect has been more dated (or embarrassing) than the theme song by Pitbull. Continuing a trend that should have died a long time ago -- seriously, who does this anymore? -- the vapid rapper takes over for Will Smith, delivering the theme song for the movie or whatever.

Pitbull, Men IN Black 3

Since "Men In Black 3" is the continuation of a franchise that started in the '90s, it's no surprise that everything about the movie so far has felt ripped right out the decade. But perhaps no aspect has been more dated (or embarrassing) than the theme song by Pitbull. Continuing a trend that should have died a long time ago -- seriously, who does this anymore? -- the vapid rapper takes over for Will Smith, delivering the theme song for the movie or whatever.

As we've noted before, the song is terrible, but if you're able to endure this video (and Pitbull's constant mugging with a face you just want to punch), you'll be treated to some new footage from the three-quel as a reward for your patience. Lots of aliens and wacky looking guns, and Agent J and Agent K doing their thing. But there is also Pitbull who keeps popping up, reminding you he wrote the song that annoyingly samples Sylvia & Mickey's "Love Is Strange." Anyway, watch it below (you've been warned). The movie opens on May 25th. [Idolator]
