While most bands break Guinness World Records with the sales of their songs, albums and/or concerts and/or how long their music stays on the charts, Backstreet Boys broke one completely unrelated to their tunes.
The Boy Band is on a cruise right now with thousands of their fans from all over the World and that worked to their advantage. They were able to clinch the World Record for Most Nationalities in a Jacuzzi. How many? 30 to be exact and they were from Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Chile, Costa Rica, Denmark, France, Germany, Guatemala, Netherlands, Hungary, Israel, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Peru, Poland, Romania, Switzerland, Philippines, USA, Uruguay, Uzbekistan, Venezuela and Cuba. In order to beat the previous record, the participants had to show their passports and stay in the hot tub for at least 5 minutes. I am sure those women had a hard time doing that. Not!
Seriously, if you are going to be in the Guinness Book of World Records, you might as well have fun doing it. Looks like they all had a blast.
But not a blast from the past because it wasn’t a Hot Tub Time Machine. Sorry, I had to!
BTW this not their only record in the book. They also hold the title for Best-Selling Album in the USA by a Boy Band. Take that, Take That and *NSYNC!
UPDATE: Here is the video of them breaking the record!
Nick Carter is trying his hand at screenwriting tonight at 8p in the Syfy original movie Dead 7. It is a Zombie movie mixed in with the Old West and you throw in a whole bunch of ’90s Boy Banders. What do you get? The perfect mix of total awesomeness.
It has been several decades since the Zombie virus started in a copper mine, which is why they are called Copper Heads. It would be one thing if it was the Walking Alive vs the Walking Dead, but it is not. Apocolypta (Debra Wilson) wants to be leader of the human race and she has created a Zombie Army to kill anyone that stands in her way. Jack (Nick Carter) and his gang decide it is time to take her down, but that is easier said than done. They have come up with a plan to stop her, but at what cost? Will they make it out alive or deadish.
Dead 7 is wild ride where you can tell that everyone is having a blast. BSB’s AJ McLean and *NSYNC’s Joey Fatone are having the wildest time of them all. Wilson is extremely scary as Apocolypta, so much so you will never look at the MadTV actress the same way. O-Town’s Erik-Michael Estrada nails it as the Samurai Zombie Killer. And then there is Nick Carter, who has proven he has a career in more than singing. Now having said that, he better not say bye, bye, bye to the Backstreet Boys anytime soon.
Oh and there is blood, lots and lots of blood.
If you are looking for a rip roaring Zombie movie, then tune in to Dead 7 tonight. I promise you will think it is a hoot.
Remember when you were little a girl and you dreamed about different members from your favorite Boy Bands getting together to form one band and creating a song that you could use to dream about them? Well, it might’ve taken 2 decades but it finally happened.
Backstreet Boys’ AJ McLean, Nick Carter and Howie D, *NSYNC’s Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick, 98 Degrees’ Jeff Timmons and O-Town’s Erik-Michael Estrada all got together to record the theme song to Carter’s Syfy movie Dead 7 that debuts on Friday night.
Even if the Zombie film is horrible, at least we got this perfect ’90s song out of it.
The first trailer is out for Nick Carter’s Dead 7 that debuts on April 1st (my birthday) and I think this a bigger joke than me. Only I can say that!
The Syfy movie is written and stars Carter, and it also includes a lot his friends from the ’90s. Those Boy Band members are Howie Dorough and AJ McLean from Backstreet Boys, Jeff Timmons from 98 Degrees, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick from *NSYNC, Jacob Underwood, Trevor Penick, Erik-Michael Estrada and Dan Miller from O-Town, Delious Kennedy from All-4-One, Art Alexakis from Everclear, Tommy McCarthy from No Authority, Adam Griel from Frontstreet Boys and Jon Secada from his own Boy Band. Is this enough to turn these walking dead singers back into superstars? We will have to tune in on April Fool’s Day to find out. But since there hasn’t been a good Zombie movie since the ’90s, I think we can all guess the answer. Yes, I know that Zombieland and Warm Bodies came out since then, but I was trying to make a funny.
via Bridgit Mendler Less than 24 hours after Nick Carter was arrested, his bandmates AJ McLean, Brian Littrell and Kevin Richardson were seen singing with two new singers? So have the Backstreet Boys already replaced their 4th member? Nope, they were just shooting a promo with Chris D’Elia and Brent Morin for their appearance on next Friday’s Undateable Live on NBC at 8p. Which is a really good thing because D’Elia cannot sing.
BTW before BSB take the Undateable Live stage, Weezer will be singing on it tonight! You don’t want to miss it, it is as good as pork and beans.
