SNL’s Old School Boy Band Spoof is Hilarious and Embarrassingly Accurate

By | November 16, 2015


Oh, snap! All the boy bands we fawned over back in the day just got called out in the most hilarious way ever.

As a part of a totally cray Saturday Night Live sketch, host Elizabeth Banks took on the role of pop singer from a girl group named Infinity Plus Five. Joined by SNL‘s Aidy Bryant, Cecily Strong, Kate McKinnon and Vanessa Bayer, the Hunger Games star and her all-white crew performed “First Got Horny 2 U,” in which they retrospectively and lyrically drooled over their first crushes, which happened to include former TRL host Carson Daly and Taylor Hanson.

“Back in ’96, I first heard ‘MMMBop’/Started getting sweaty in my thermal top,” Kate sings. Um, we’re sure both Carson and Taylor would probz be flattered realizing that someone still acknowledges them as former heartthrobs, if only they weren’t lumped in with the Menendez Brothers (WTF?!), The Nanny‘s Mr. Sheffield and Robbie from The Dinosaurs, the respective objects of affections for Vanessa, Elizabeth and Aidy.

Aside from that little bit of madness, it’s clear that the women of Infinity Five had their sights set on poking direct fun at The Backstreet Boys, whose famous all-white wardrobe happens to be one of the most memorable details from their “I Want it That Way” video.

Sorry, old school boy banders — you know it’s all love between us but this sketch has us laughing our a**ses off.
