Robin Thicke Features Paula Patton Lookalike in 'Get Her Back' Video
There is nothing subtle about Robin Thicke's attempts to woo back estranged wife Paula Patton.
The crooner's way-too-public Mea Culpa Tour continued on Monday as he released the music video for "Get Her Back." And if there were any lingering questions about the song's intent, they were quashed by the clip — which features a Patton lookalike.
The skin-tillating video includes close-ups of the shirtless crooner singing about his longings and regret, with the actress initially appearing indifferent to his desires. Eventually, however, Robin appears to win his video woman back. And, in case anyone didn't get the message, the camera repeatedly zooms in on Robin's wedding ring.
Along the way, the clip is interspersed with pop-up text messages, including: "Can I talk to you?" "You ruined everything." "You drink too much." "You embarrassed me." And "I can't make love to you anymore." The most telling reads: "I wrote a whole album about you," which is followed up with the response, "I don't care."
"This is just the beginning" the final text reads.

Thicke, 37, and Patton, 38, announced their separation after nine years of marriage in February, following a scandal-filled year during which Thicke was linked to other women in photos and gossip columns. The two had been together since high school and have one son together, Julian, 3.
In the intervening months, Thicke has made no secret about his desire to reconcile their relationship. In several concerts he has pleaded from stage about wanting Patton back in his life. When he performed "Get Her Back" at the Billboard Music Awards in May he got down on his knees and practically begged for her to return to him.
Patton, on the other hand, has remained virtually silent on the matter. To date the only time she's spoken about the split is in the May issue of Vanity Fair.
