Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick are two of the coolest humans on the planet—which makes their epic fail at the Trolls premiere in London even more adorably awkward.

The two stars were supposed to light the iconic London Eye up in rainbow colors in honor of their new animated feature—"supposed to" being the key phrase. According to The Huffington Post, things did not go according to plan.

The setup was great; they had a big red button and everything. Timberlake and Kendrick took their places, did the obligatory countdown, and got the crowd excited.

But when it came time to push the button...nothing happened.

"And all the power goes out," Timberlake joked. He even lifted the pedestal the button was on, looking for what had gone wrong.

And he just. Kept. Hitting. The. Button. It was cute and then sad and then so sad it became cute all over again.


Eventually, the technical crew fixed the glitch and the Eye was lit up in full rainbow Trolls glory.

Timberlake and Kendrick were so adorably awkward, it was totally worth the wait.
