Even the haters out there have to admit Justin Timberlake is a talented dude. He’s got a great voice. He can write songs, produce songs. He can act. And so on and so forth. But when it comes to his culinary talents, well, let’s just say the jury is still out–unless you believe that shoving a blueberry inside of a raspberry is a truly mind-blowing new edible masterpiece.
Yesterday, Timberlake took to Instagram, a platform where he has an incredible 47.3 million followers, to post a video with only the simple caption, “Braspberry”…. In the short clip, the star can be seen digging into a fruit bowl full of blueberries, raspberries and blackberries–a very typical berry medley. (Some bananas can be seen in the background, but that particular fruit is immaterial to this story.) First, he fishes out a raspberry with a spoon; next, a blueberry. “Is it a coincidence that the blueberry fits in the raspberry perfectly?” he asks those in the room, including someone chuckling in the background. “I think not”. And then, he anoints his creation with its nickname: “Braspberry”, he says with emphasis before popping one in his mouth.
