Making this movie about a grown up Boy Band well past their prime (and please pop on over to the kickstarter to give if you haven’t! Even at the $1 level it helps a ton!) has got me thinking a LOT over the year about all things boy band. And growing up in the 80’s as I did, what it really made me want to do was Voltron an ultimate boy band member.
That meant picking hair, face, arms, legs and feet to smash together into the ultimate “musician” capable of fighting an alien. And though I was able to do it as an intellectual exercise, it felt… incomplete. Because I needed to see that Boy Bander in action to know what he would look like, and if he would be capable of defending our species. Enter Pierre Nagley – brilliant local artist here in Yellow Springs capable of transforming my concept into actual art – complete with trident.
Here’s the breakdown in case you’re curious:
Hair: Justin Timberlake of N Sync
Mouth: Donnie Wahlberg of New Kids On The Block
Facial Hair: AJ McLean of Backstreet Boys
Eyes: Michael Bivens of New Edition
Torso: Every single member of Menudo
Arms: Nick Lachey and Drew Lachey of 98 Degrees
Legs: Nick Jonas, Joe Jonas, Stanley(?) Jonas of Jonas Brothers
Feet: Michael Jackson of Jackson 5
Would you do anything different? Are you upset I left out Kriss Kross and BoyZone?
