Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake are showing off their comedic chops by taking to YouTube to promote their upcoming romantic comedy Friends With Benefits.
While the video doesn’t help diffuse rumours that the on-screen duo are romantically linked, it does however aim to generate some publicity for Will Gluck’s eagerly awaited rom-com. Black Swan beauty Kunis and Bad Teacher funny-man Timberlake use the spoofy video to propose their own changes to social networks sites, suggesting a new ‘friends with benefits’ option under the relationship status tab.

This is only Will Gluck’s third attempt at feature film directing but judging by the success of his last critically acclaimed movie Easy A, this film shouldn’t be anything short of a comedic gem.
The impressive line-up of the ensemble cast includes Lonely Island star Andy Samberg, New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez, Kingpin actor Woody Harrelson and a few Easy A favourites, including Emma Stone and Patricia Clarkson. Both I Love You, Man stars Jason Segel and Rashida Jones also make cameo appearances in the film.
You can take your partners and friends (with benefits… of course) to catch the comedy when it hits theaters on July 22, 2011.
