Hello, readers, and welcome to Framed, America's funniest, best, and also handsomest blog. Get ready for captions!
This week, we're overly excited to be featuring--for the first time!--NSYNC, the greatest of the boy bands that, happily, remade the music scene in the last decade. NSYNC, of course, would give us Justin Timberlake--who would, in turn, go on to bring the sexy back. So you can see that it all worked out.
Our featured video is "God Must Have Spent A Little More Time On You," the third single from their debut album. Like all of our favorite videos, this one takes place in the old-timey World War II years, back when America was good. And, like all great music videos, it has a quasi-twist ending you'll surely enjoy.
We'll be back again next week to present even more music video fun! Heck, bring the family!
Important blog note! What say we take a look at a few of the comments you readers have been posting over the last couple of months? We're happy to report that most of them are as pointless as Framed is itself...a high bar for pointlessness, indeed! This gives us a chance to respond in our own lighthearted way and, since we get paid by the word, to make a little more money to spend on all sorts of bad habits. Keep posting!
