If you're one of the over 36 million people who follows Justin Bieber on Instagram, then you know that he has a new single coming out at the end of this month. It's actually literally impossible to not know that Justin's single, "What Do You Mean," is coming out. He has a freaking countdown on his page, and posts a new picture or video from different celebrities every day as the release date nears. You couldn't escape Bieber-mania if you wanted to right now. The list of celebrities helping him promote the single grows by the day, but it's already a who's who of sorts, with appearances from Ryan Seacrest​, ShaqTony HawkAriana GrandeBig SeanLuke Bryan, and a shit ton more. 

Rather than trying to tell you how crazy this promotion is, it's much easier to just take a trip through Justin's social media pages and marvel at what he's pulled off. (Note: We will continue to update this as we get closer to the release of the single, which hopefully won't totally suck after all of this promo.)
