Yeah, another Jay Z/Beyonce post — sorry not sorry! — but this one is necessary. Jayonce is about to embark on their coheadling “On The Run” tour so naturrrrraaaaaaalllly they had to do something big to promote it — like making an exhaustive trailer for a movie starring them that does not actually exist. Featuring cameos by super sexy bearded, man bun-sporting Jake Gyllenhaal, as well as Don Cheadle, Blake Lively, Rashida and Kidada Jones, “On The Run” is, as the trailer reminds us, COMING NEVER.
