Or something about combined ages coming out to even more croony vocals? Whatever, what I’m trying to say, is that I kind of love this. Its like the platonic ideal of a boy band song, like so incredibly….”dirty pop,” if you will, that it almost becomes unlistenable? I think my favorite part is the incredibly serious “N. K. O. T. B. S. B.” voiceover underneath it all. Speaking of serious, I am also delighted by the earnestness and grown-upness of their website:

We’re here for moms and yuppies confused and threatened by Ke$ha and Justin Bieber. We mean it. We take our work with the utmost seriousness.

Also the top comment is by someone whose YouTube name is “PartyLikeBackstreet.” This is so fun.
