I know, I know – this is a little bit late to the Harlem Shake party. But, don’t blame me for tardiness! (I mean, I did post a Harlem Shake roundup a month and a half ago, so really, don’t blame SC.) Actually, blame the Backstreet Boys. They’re the ones who showed up more than fashionably late to the Harlem Shake soirée. They just made a Harlem Shake video and I would be one awful, awful 90s kid if I didn’t share it with you. (P.S. I am writing this post while listening to 98 Degrees and it feels a little sacrilegious. Though, it could be worse. I could be listening to ‘N Sync.) Even though all of us at SC, myself included, are way beyond over the Harlem Shake, I had to share. You would probably hate me forever if I didn’t expose you to this video and there’s no way I’d risk that. So, I’m posting a belated Harlem Shake video and there’s nothing you can do about it.
Anyway, lets talk more about the Backstreet Boys. I’m not sure what made them decide to make a Harlem Shake video but I am oddly intrigued. It is BSB after all, and I cannot deny my undying love for them. (And I am not ashamed to admit that. Not even on the Internet. It’s a well known fact by now anyway.) As far as the video goes, the only thing I can really say I response to seeing Nick Carter gyrate in tiny little briefs and Kevin Richardson thrusting in a creepy bunny costume is this: it is quite possibly simultaneously the most disturbing and the most fabulously awesome thing you will probably ever see. I’ll just leave you with that while you watch.
