Most of us wouldn’t relish a comparison to our younger selves. For Britney Spears, the juxtaposition – via video dance off – is particularly painful. And her ex, Justin Timberlake, is the next to be subjected to an unflattering mashup.

In April, a “then and now” video of Spears documenting the decade-long decline of her dance skills went viral. Playboy recently asked her former sweetheart Timberlake what he thinks of the mashup, which shows the once-lithe Spears’ gyrating half-heartedly in her latest videos “Hold It Against Me” and “Till the World Ends.” Timberlake defended Spears, saying: “If you pulled up a video I did from 2003, I couldn’t do the s___ I did then either.”

The pranksters at Popdust needed no more urging to crank out an “Old Justin vs. New Justin” video exploring “Timberlake’s musical past and whatever the hell he’s doing now.”

Though Justin may not have had two kids like Britney, he’s suffering from a similarly premature decline, according to Popdust. The video documents him playing golf, lamenting the weight gain perils of cheese, and voicing the character Boo Boo in the Yogi Bear movie. Bye bye bye, SexyBack?
