Prepare yourselves for a serious nostalgia hit, as one 1990s boy band star has given fans a blast from the past with a new video.
Taking to social media, the pop star – who rose to fame 26 years ago – shared a motivational message with his followers.
Do you recognise him? Well, how about a hint… MMMBop, ba duba dop!
Yep, it’s 1/3 of Hanson!
Isaac, 42, is the eldest of the trio, having been catapulted to stardom with brothers Taylor, 40, and Zac, 37, over two decades ago.
They were originally known as The Hanson Brothers but later changed their name to Hanson.
Taking to Instagram recently, Isaac filmed himself talking to his 125,000 followers, looking worlds away from his past self.
His shaggy blonde locks are long gone, as he now sports a much shorter hairdo.
Explaining the barriers he’s been facing, Isaac began: ‘I am staring at a pretty massive list of things I need to get done and I am feeling more than a little bit overwhelmed, feeling a healthy dose of fight or flight. And now, I’d love to fly. Just leave that list behind and get the heck out of here.’
He continued: ‘But, obviously, that’s probably not the right thing to do. List-making and checking things off a list, especially doing it solo, has just never really been a strength of mine.’
Giving his followers some encouragement, he added: ‘As I’m thinking about motivations and getting through that, I look over here on my wall and there’s a quote.

‘It says, “In times of comfort there is a little growth. In terms of growth there is a little comfort”, that feels very real to me right now.’
Isaac’s followers greatly appreciated his wise words, with one commenting: ‘You’re a gift. Thank you for this advice!’
‘I actually genuinely needed this today. ❤️ thank you for always being motivational and real’, commented another.
So, that’s how Isaac is using his platform nowadays, with his bio stating that he’s a ‘lover, fighter, poem writer, thinker, prayer, music maker, husband, father, and tree house builder.’
MMMBop was undoubtedly Hanson’s biggest hit back in the day and it’s still the song most associated with the group.
Released in 1997, the catchy pop tune was nominated for two Grammys and reached number one in 12 countries, including the UK and US.

Following this, Hanson released their debut album, Middle of Nowhere, which only added to their successes with another three Grammy noms.
While they might be considered one-hit wonders by many, Hanson are still going and have since released five more albums.
They now make music under their own independent label and set out on a world tour from June to November in 2022.
Most recently, in May 2023, they teamed up with iconic British band Busted to release a cover version of MMMBop, titled MMMBop 2.0.
As for their personal lives, Isaac has three children with his wife Nicole.
