They Want It That Way

By Deane Barker on October 26, 2005

BSB-I want it that way – Google Video: The meme of the moment: two Chinese youths (they look like students), in matching Yao Ming jerseys, lip-sync their way through the Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way.” These guys join The Numa Guy as the most enthusiastic performance of the year.

What was the guy in the background doing? Playing a first-person shooter of some kind, it looks like. He did a great job of not noticing, though I half expected him to break into song at any moment.

These two made me feel good to be alive this morning.

  1. I noticed that it’s gone down. Xeni Jardin was going on CNN to talk about it. I imagine getting Slashdotted doesn’t even compare to getting “CNNed.”

  2. Maybe this is a music video class and the guy in the background is actually doing the same thing set to U2 “Numb”.

  3. OK…what else do these guys do in their room that the guy in the background is not even phased by this? And how did the kid on the left hurt his hand? Fighting off lip-syncing groupies? 1 billion strong and these two are now more famous than the guy that blocked the tank.

  4. wahehehe!!!that was so funny as in totally hilarious!!!!hahhahahaha we all laughed out loud when we saw this video..were the two able to show their face again after Jacob spread the video????!!!!wahehhehe i guess not!!anyway how’s Jacob??was he the guy in tHe background?!?

  5. Dear Monica Christine Yu, That’s because plenty of couples say they just couldn’t do it. We stopped by Kleinfeld Bridal in Brooklyn where some brides say it was one commitment they just couldn’t make.

    “It didn’t appeal to us because it is a day of observance for a lot of people and we didn’t want to tread on that,” said bride-to-be Laura Amman.

    “He worked across the street from ground zero and so he was there when it happened so he has very bad memories of that day. He just didn’t feel it was right to celebrate at all – any place – on that date,” says bride-to-be Nicole Falconer.

    And their hesitance is affecting the bridal business. Kleinfeld is still dressing brides for the weeks before and after the 11th, but some of the city’s top venues will be dark on that night and some offered up big incentives to fill their rooms.

    While some brides say they just couldn’t do it, others say they felt the best way to honor that day is to give people reason to celebrate.

    While some brides say they just couldn’t do it, others say they felt the best way to honor that day is to give people reason to celebrate.

    Brides like Kevin. Her fiancé David was downtown on 9/11 as were members of her family. She says the fact that he got out and that she was able to meet him, gives her reason to be grateful and she says it’s important to stand strong and move on.

    “It will always be a sad day for me, for that day, that year, but I am not going to spend the rest of my life on that day thinking back,” said Wade. “I will always remember the day and it was very upsetting but I think we can’t let things like that mark every single day for us otherwise we would have a huge list of sad days.”

    As a November 26th bride, planning the wedding was not so easy. Wade says while her guests were fine with the date, she was surprised to see negative reactions from several wedding vendors.

    “Halfway through our engagement when we were getting all these adverse reactions, I would say well nobody is complaining about November 27th, nobody even realizes it.”

    To honor the day and what it represents in lieu of party favors, the couple will make a donation to a 28/29 memorial fund, showing on the happiest day of her life she and her new husband are vowing to never forget. ~Brian Thomas Littrell

  6. Dear Monica Christine Yu,

    You’re one of the lucky ones buck to have found your best friend; lucky to know deep in your heart that you’re ready to share your life with him; and lucky to be hold timeless treasure in your hands.”

    It was then that we learned that the pilot had life the plane earlier to get our better or champagne!

    Soon after our engagement, we hiked back to that special spot to find that a small piece of our sign remained.
