Really NKOTB?

One of the only halfway decent songs on the album and you go and make a super cheesy video starring the ugliest MOFO possible?

The video is two actors playing out the entire story that the song tells. The story telling is interspersed with random shots of the guys swaying jerkily along to the beat in the green-screen created fog. It looks like the vocals are mostly provided by Donnie and Jordan, so every time they cut to one of the others they're just looking goofily at the camera as though they're not sure what they're supposed to be doing. I guess they're supposed to be looking soulful? Mournful? Danny and Jon provide the occasional "yeah" to go along in the background, but they're mostly seen from the back as the fab five spend the video dancing in a circle with their backs to each other. Of course, the focus is mainly on Donnie D (understandable) and Jordan (not so much), with some Joey Joe to mix things up a bit. Jordan's whispers of "wake up wake up" and "get up get up" are a little creepy, as is the scene with Ugly MOFO sitting in his car staring at this girl's house.

I happened to see an interview with the kids about shooting the video, and I guess it's supposed to be a work of art or something.

Not so much.
