It's a rainy Wednesday morning here in NYC, but this Hump Day got way better when I came to work this morning and watched The Wanted's new music video. I interviewed the guys a few weeks ago at the E! Upfront about other boy bands, but I had no idea they were like, legit fans of their predecessors. Oh my god.
In their new video for "Walks Like Rihanna," Siva, Tom, Jay, Nathan and Max impersonate both 'NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys. The video starts off with a nod to 'NSYNC's "Bye Bye Bye," where they act as marionettes. Remember that music video? No 90's kid can forget 'em, so I really appreciated this, you guys.
Then, it finished off with a little bit of BSB's "I Want It That Way." The white outfits in the airport scene is engrained in my mind forever and I am obsessed with The Wanted's interpretation of it. Max even wears AJ's fedora! I can't tell if they're making fun of them or just impersonating, but either way it's basically amazing:
But you probably want to see the actual music video, right? Here it is. Brace yourself for nostalgia to the max:
Was that not the most amazing thing you've seen all day? Do you like that The Wanted paid homage to the original boy bands or do you wish they'd just leave those precious 90's bands alone? Tweet us @OKMagazine and tweet me @haleyb221 to let me know what you think!
