Justin BieberÂ—will he or won't he? Attend college that is. That's a question that his fans and foes alike have been asking since he graduated from high school. Will JB go on to higher education? The answer is a resounding "yes!" In fact he's already there, but he's not having a very good time. That's mostly because of his creepy room mate, who has a panoply of bad habits, like bringing home strange pets and exposing himself. Okay, okay, Justin is not at college. He's staying at a hotel in New York City. The story about his awful freshman year and his psycho roomie are from a video parody he made of the 2010 film, The Roommate.
As you can see on the video clip below, Justin and his new BFF don't exactly see eye to eye. Not that anyone could blame JB. Two minutes after they meet, his new roomie from Hell, Declan, assumes they're already best friends, and tells JB he loves him. Later, he brings home a dead rat which he tries to pass off as their new puppy. He combs his wild mop of hair over his forehead and announces, "I've got the same haircut as you." Lastly, he exposes himself while Justin is trying to talk to his mom on the phone. Yikes.
Exactly when Justin Bieber made the video parody is unknown. Although it just showed up on the JB fan sites, it was probably made many months ago since Justin is still sporting a modified bowl haircut.
Anyhow, enjoy the video. You'll be especially impressed by "Sir Ben Kingsley's" astonishing performance as Declan.
