We watched the latest episode of Project Runway All Stars, which is the worst show in the world with unlikable designers, crap challenges, crap judges and a terrible 14-month pregnant Alyssa Milano as host. Bring back normal Project Runway NOW.
After the main event, we moved on to YouTubing pop music videos from the early 2000s, as per usual. We watched "He Loves Me Not" by Dream, "I'm Real", J.Lo's embowering duet with Ja Rule, and even a random girl dressed up to look like Britney Spears performing "I'm a Slave For You" for the MTV show 'Becoming'.
Then I asked Jakub, who is from Poland, if there were any Polish boybands back in the day.
"Yes," he said. "There was one. They were called 'Just 5'."
And in a flash I had Just 5's hit song "Kolorowe sny" blaring through the laptop speakers. It didn't take long for me to realise something was terribly, terribly wrong.
Watch and listen for yourself:
Notice anything strange? No? Well, does the song below ring a bell?
Just because you're singing in gobbledegook doesn't mean we can't tell that song is a BACKSTREET BOYS SONG! It's almost the same exact backing track.
|Just 5. Because there are just five of them. Get it?|
Something is fishy here, and I bet you anything Lou Pearlman is at the bottom of it.
P.S. Who's cuter, Polish Nick Carter or real Nick Carter?
