We’ve been speculating for quite some time now that Pharrell Williams held the much coveted key to the fountain of youth. Sure, he’s told us about his skincare regimen, the importance of finding a good dermatologist and taking skin maintenance tips from Naomi Campbell, but we think we finally have it figured out…Pharrell is a vampire.
Devilishly handsome, charming in every way, and never-aging? Sounds like a vampire to us. And as long as it means that his presence is eternal, we’re just fine with that.
All vampy jokes (sorta) aside, today is the 10th anniversary of the release of the theme song to every single high school and college fashion show: “Change Clothes.” And that also makes it prime time to briefly revisit some of the most epic moments in the star-studded 2003 video, like Naomi’s strut.

The lesson: Pharrell is a vampire, and black don’t crack, y’all.
Yes, Pharrell, we’re amazed too.
