If Justin Timberlake ask his fans to go to New Jersey, they go to New Jersey.

Yesterday night (August 28), the singer tweeted a message to his nearly 25 million followers that he would be filming a commercial for Target at the recently closed club, Maxwell’s in Hoboken, NJ. The message, sent only a few hours before he was set to shoot the ad, explained that the first 150 fans would get in. It also imparted the wise advice of taking public transportation to get to the club.

According to–who had a reporter on the scene- thousands of fans flooded Washington Street, where the club is located, trying to catch a glimpse of JT performing his newest single, “Take Back The Night” off The 20/20 Experience Part 2. Police were using loudspeakers to try and keep the streets clear, but it was reportedly of little help. Timberlake’s fans aren’t going to get out of the street just because a cop told them to.

The paper also reported that Timberlake’s wife, Jessica Biel and rapper French Montana was spotted hear his trailer.

Maxwell’s, which closed earlier this summer after 35 years, seemed like an odd choice for Timberlake, being that it was known for housing intimate shows from indie bands including Yo La Tengo, who took the chance to have some fun with the singer.

The New Jersey band spent their night tweeting one liners like “Hanukkah was like 9 months ago, stupid,” in reference to Yo La’s Hanukkah shows, which took place at Maxwell’s and “Your car just got booted while you were onstage.”

Part 2 of Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience drops September 30.
