Backstreet’s Back, Alright

August 25th, 2006 by Alex

So regular readers of this blog may already know that I have a bit of an obsession with the two people I thought were called the “Chinese Backstreet Boys.” Turns out - nobody tells me anything - that they’re actually the “Back Dorm Boys,” and that they’re a cult sensation in China, which once again proves that, as a nation, China has excellent taste. (Exhibit A is, of course, the fried meat dumpling, in my mind mankind’s single greatest culinary invention. For God’s sake, the best my people ever came up with was gefilte fish — and have you ever smelled that stuff?)

Anyway, Wikipedia has - surprise, surprise - quite a bit of information on these two; they’ve apparently just graduated from art school and have signed a deal to be spokespeople for Motorola in China. And here, for your viewing pleasure, is their latest video.
