Reviewing Cee Lo’s new Vegas-set video, ‘I Want You’

0:02 Love the Neon Boneyard letters spelling out “Cee Lo.” Excellent nod to the past.
0:24 The piano and bathrobe with the word “Loberace” on them? Okay, that made us laugh. Sincerely.
1:29 Could have done without the shot of the Hennessy bottle. Don’t like product placement in movies, and that goes double for videos.
0:30 & 1:48 We lost our Liberace Museum, so it’s nice to see the man get so much love here. And those Liberace-inspired getups? They took some balls to wear.
Verdict: Cee Lo, if this classy-as-f*ck video is your bid to become a Vegas headliner, we say: When can you start?
