Pitbull travels through time in the action-packed video for “Back in Time,” the theme song for Men in Black 3. The Miami rapper suits up as Agent M, placing himself in scenes directly out of the sci-fi comedy starring Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. He encounters aliens at a Chinese restaurant and rocks the crowd at a fashionable party.
“We’re doing a really, really ambitious video,” said the director. “We’re placing Pitbull directly into the movie in several scenes.”
Pitbull explained the concept for the record, which samples Mickey & Sylvia’s 1950s hit “Love Is Strange.” “We can’t understand the future if we don’t go back in time,” he said. “I think we often times need to go back in time to figure out who we are and how we’re gonna move forward.”
