We all remember the ‘90s, replete with great cartoons, bad fashion and even worse boy bands. Some of those groups have made resurgences in the recent years, with New Kids on the Block, NSYNC and Backstreet Boys all embarking on reunion tours in the past few years. But we can guarantee you’ve forgotten all about Thr33way, who have just recently resurfaced in a segment on The Late Late Show with James Corden, reminiscing on their glory days.
The bit features clips from their hit songs “Thr33way,” “Quit Playin’ Games With My Penis” and “MMBoobs,” their Hanson ripoff, which then leads to the darker days of Thr33way. After Hanson sued them for what was likely plagiarism (and arguably defamation), it “opened the floodgates” for them to be sued by Backstreet Boys, NSYNC and none other than The Beatles—just because they could—which then resulted in the “final nail in the coffin,” where in a Mario Lopez interview it was revealed that they’re all virgins.
Obviously, James Corden, Jordan Peele and Nick Kroll have never been in a boy band together, which honestly is a shame. But it’s a great little bit that really sells the over-the-top boy-band culture. And honestly, it’s just fun to watch these guys do this together. Check out the parody video above and reminisce on some of the hidden classics of the millennial generation.
