To quell my hankering for repeat viewings of Tyler Oakley's "HOW TO: Be A Bad Bitch" video, I stormed YouTube earlier this evening in search of a new lip synced obsession.
After an intense audition process that spanned two hours and several dozen sticks of string cheese, I whittled the candidates down to a handful of videos, from which I have compiled a "top-five" list.
Top Five YouTube Lip Sync Videos That Coincidentally All Feature Teenage Boys
5. "Everytime We Touch" by Cascada by owensmhs1990
An intimate bedroom scene, a slow motion air hump sequence and outtakes set to Juvenile's "Slow Motion" are just a few of the reasons why this eerie gem earned its place on the list.
4. "What Hurts the Most" by Cascada by scottcaps22
Appropriately titled "Strange Kid Singing," I fell for this video because of the outrageous mimed-horn-on-fake-plastic-steering-wheel move he pulls off at the midway point. Also, I dug that this video's most popular comment was "He looks like a Jewish Jimmy Neutron."
3. "Barbie Girl" by Aqua by trueblue2968
While watching this 2006 video, I couldn't help but wonder where these future frats boys ended up. Regardless, I hope they came to grips with the glaring sexual tension that occurs at the 1:02 mark.
2. "Wannabe" by the Spice Girls by Brenboy01
To be frank, Batman T-Shirt sold this video with his mystifying ability to channel Baby Spice during every chorus. While the sloppy cameo by Girl At Computer likely cost this video the top spot, Batman T-Shirt saved its number two ranking with his fierce display of spirit fingers near the end of the song.
1. "I Want It That Way" by the Backstreet Boys by Adamo0
Their silky smooth choreography drew me in but their uncanny mastery of the lyrics kept me watching. Also, I like headbands.
