A thoroughly dramatic reading of Justin Bieber's 'Love Yourself', by Morgan Freeman

There isn’t anything getting you down that can’t be cured by Morgan Freeman’s vocal chords.

We don’t deserve Morgan Freeman’s voice. We are not worthy.

But he has bestowed upon us a dramatic reading of Justin Bieber’s Love Yourself, a slow, acoustic track that’s been watched on YouTube more that 375 million times.

If anyone could top that, it’s Morgan Freeman. Thanks to Vanity Fair, we now know exactly what it would sound like if the actor lent his smooth voice to the lyrics of pop. You never knew you wanted it, and now you'll never stop listening to it.

The black and white shots, the glances to camera – it’s all too much.
