Well this came out of nowhere! Those lucky enough to get an advanced preview of Selena’s upcoming movie, ‘Behaving Badly,’ got a big surprise when they noticed a certain someone gliding across the screen for a split-second — Justin Bieber! If you blink you’ll miss it, but fortunately you can watch the exact moment Justin cameos right here before the movie comes out!
Remember the summer of 2012, when Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were perfectly in love and he visited her on the set of Behaving Badly? Ahh, those were the days. But as it turns out, Justin wasn’t just visiting Selena — he was actually filming a scene for the movie! And a clip of the short cameo hit the internet on June 3!
Justin Bieber Shows Up In ‘Behaving Badly’
According to a clip that a fan uploaded from the movie (it’s already out in the UK), Justin’s cameo is a five-second quickie that takes place in a jail. Before the camera lands on the movie’s main character, Nat Wolff, it pans across a prison hallway as a perp is being walked to a cell. That perp? It’s the Biebs!
Justin is only on screen for these five seconds of the entire movie — so the cameo is just a cheeky inside joke since Selena and Justin were dating at the time. It even seems possible that Justin showed up to the movie set to visit Selena, and director Tim Garrick decided on the spot to throw him in the movie.
Justin Bieber’s Cameo: Remember The Good ‘Ol Days?
The cameo is pretty absurdly ironic and funny now, but for a separate set of reasons. First of all, the obvious — Justin was acting as a criminal all decked out in orange for Behaving Badly in Aug. 2012, but more than a year later he made that same exact walk in real life when he was arrested for DUI in Miami, Fla. in Jan. 2014. Maybe the Biebs liked his movie cameo so much that he wanted to relive it?
It’s also odd to be reminded of the lighter days of Justin and Selena’s relationship. Their romance was as perfect as can be back when Justin filmed his cameo, and seeing him and Selena in the same movie only reminds us of how far they’ve fallen since then.
