Backstreet Boys ‘Show ‘Em (What You’re Made Of)’ Official [VIDEO]
As if the picture right there didn't tempt you enough! The boys are taking their clothes off!
The video for 'Show 'Em (What You're Made Of)' is actually pretty simple. Five guys singing to a camera in front of a black screen and some of them get naked! Well, half naked.
What I find interesting is the fact that Howie has a shirt on, when back in the day he was notorious for taking it off!
And Brian who is usually the conservative shy one, just takes that shirt off like it's his job. I think he did it as a symbolic gesture. Let me explain, Brian had open heart surgery when he was in his 20's and had always covered his scar, but for this video aptly titled 'Show Em (What You're Made Of)' he lets it show. Beautiful. In more ways than one. Am I right, ladies?
Another thing I found interesting, A.J. took his shirt off, but the camera never pans down or gets a wide shot of his whole chest. Did he get a little chubby? Does he have a scandalous tattoo that can't be shown? Is A.J. upset they tummy shamed him? But I digress.
Now, I will admit this video has an overload of arm gestures and cheesy camera pointing, but what else are they supposed to do? They are just standing there alone singing.
And it wouldn't be a Backstreet Boy video if there wasn't some arm gesturing and cheesy camera pointing. Duh.
In conclusion, thank you to the Backstreet Boys for showing us what they're made of! Literally! I'd like to see a little more next time. *wink wink*
