    This video has just changed my life. And I’m sure it wasn’t on a good way =/

  4. SteppinRazor on July 31, 2008 at 6:52 pm

    Oh dear LORD! I remember watching this crap when I was in 8th grade (that would be almost 10 years ago)! This is BEYOND sick and wrong!

    ::wails dramatically::

    Why Mike? WHY?!?!?!?!

  5. tinkerbella26 on July 20, 2008 at 2:18 pm

  6. Madlen on July 19, 2008 at 10:18 am

  14. psyked on July 17, 2008 at 8:11 pm

    I wonder what kind of subliminal messages they are trying to give out!?!?

  15. panta_rhei on July 17, 2008 at 2:32 pm

    haha, i know this “band”🙂 but i didn’t know, they were still making music and videos…
    xxx panta rhei (that guy who gave you a CD with german and austrian music in graz🙂

  16. inWonderland on July 17, 2008 at 1:40 pm

    omg you and yer humor haha……god if i ever saw them, i would deck them….they are creepy, and the song makes me feel like i would get raped by them lol.

  18. Valerka on July 17, 2008 at 9:53 am

    freaky… I think I’ll have a nightmare after watching it

  19. comfortzone on July 17, 2008 at 4:05 am

    Take it out of my brain O_O

  20. skindesbous on July 17, 2008 at 1:44 am

  21. Keilah_136 on July 17, 2008 at 12:36 am

    Oh god my sister used to seriously listen to them… shudders. Dude, way to bring back haunting memories lol jk

  22. EyesForStriking on July 16, 2008 at 10:22 pm

    I still can’t believe that I actually watched the ENTIRE video!!! That was absolutely ridiculous! How you stumble across the most random things, I’ll never know. The song was horrible! I was curious enough to actually research them. I am so glad they’re not together anymore! That song was just so dirty. Seriously, Mike, people will be talking about this for a good while. You and I will make sure of that! Hope to see ya in Dallas!

  23. Frerard on July 16, 2008 at 9:30 pm

    i think they were planning to make an “emo” band at first, hence the spiky hair and most of all eyeliner, but had an EPIC fail. wait.. that is eyeliner that i detected right? rofl. but hey, are they triplets or what? rofl.

    just occured to me, they, however, would do a nice impression of you in OSC video if they coloured their hair red xD

    one more thing, people will talk about this video for decades for sure, because the infamous Mike Shinoda put it in his blog! the blood is in your hands, Mike! hahhahahha

  24. Blake on July 16, 2008 at 8:37 pm

    Haha wtf is that seriously a band??? I like how there hair all matches lol, I think I have a new favorite band, sorry Mike : /

  25. Sukka3 on July 16, 2008 at 8:34 pm

    yeah… theres gonna be a p.s. early tommoro morning saying theyve been added to the projekt rev line up.

  26. asianotter on July 16, 2008 at 8:02 pm

    Bahahaha! Seriously . . . is right! i thought that this was a completel joke, at first, with the 3 (orange fake and bake) oompa loompas lip syncing on the beach is a cheesy video spoof. but, the longer i watched it i slowly began to realize that these three jokers really were a group! lol! and truly took themselves seriously! X D thanks for the laugh, Mike i really needed one today! see you a Projekt Rev next month!

  27. mina on July 16, 2008 at 7:59 pm

    Oh, B4-4. I remember seeing them circulated non-stop on Much Music back in the day. Good times.

  28. lynndarwinharris on July 16, 2008 at 7:53 pm

    SERIOUSLY……I THINK I’M GOING TO BE SICK! I should not have eaten before watching that! Thanks Mike

  29. burningdaylight on July 16, 2008 at 5:56 pm

    pukes

    for the love of all that is holy and good, PLEASE say you were jetlagged when you posted this. PLEASE!!!!!!!!! i can’t take the cheesy boy-bandishness!!!!!!!!!!!

    mind combusts

  30. lucky_cat on July 16, 2008 at 5:47 pm

    Scary … how much money they have made with this embarrassing shit ?! they could give it to the man on the street at the end … more serious sense i can´t find although hard trying … but it´s very funny to read all the comments. need some sleep now. have fun!

  31. ShadowerLiltani on July 16, 2008 at 5:10 pm

    That was probably one of the weirdest boyband videos I’ve ever seen. I didn’t even watch the whole thing because it was so weird. I liked how multicultural it was though😄 I’m so used to the older boyband videos with the cute, innocent girl that happens to find the boys and they sing to her. At least the girl was almost always a grown up. Three grown men singing to a young boy is mad creepy… I would be very afraid if these guys went near my kids.

  32. komi on July 16, 2008 at 4:54 pm

    lol…i have never heard about them before but now i am back in mid-nineties…this was seriously really scary

    well, every period is characterized by something own

  33. Dj on July 16, 2008 at 4:53 pm

    I’m not too sure you are sane, Mike. I thought I might be enlightened, but no. Just more brain cells, completely dead. sigh

  34. senigma on July 16, 2008 at 3:13 pm

    Ha ha ha… I totally thought you were being serious about it being serious, but I should have known better!! Thank you!! I needed a laugh today!!

  35. martinac on July 16, 2008 at 3:13 pm

    That is bloody hilarious in a WHY GOD OH WHY? I actually thought it was gonna get serious…I kno the shame! Didn’t they think there sumthing wrong with grown women maulling a young child?..and you think I would have had enough ..hell nnooo!! clicked on their liquid dreams video…why not just change the lyrics to…women I’ve had a wet dream about lately?? and don’t worry analoggirl nobody judges canadians, ye’re all lovely…but this band sucks x Martina x

  36. amp101 on July 16, 2008 at 2:55 pm

    Nice…I remember seeing this video…ah, memories of childhood.

  37. GenMTL on July 16, 2008 at 2:34 pm

    Hahaha, check this one…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbGkxcY7YFU I think that it should be the best video ever. In Quebec, we had a tv show’s called Dolloraclip and they played just this kind of videos…that was amazing. Hey Mike, I would like to thanks all the band for the show Sunday in Quebec City. You were awesome!! I have a cold and I think that my shoes are already died but I spend a fucking great evening!! I’m sure that I still wet but it doesn’t matter!! Music is more powerfull than rain!! I want to send you by mail the “flashing” “macaron” for souvenir, where I can do this??

  38. Andjet on July 16, 2008 at 2:00 pm

    Scary! Scary! Scary! I really thought someting serious was going to come out of that video so I watched the whole thing😦 I feel so violated and I just want to jump in the shower and wash it off. There is really something disturbing about those guys!!! yuck yuck yuck Thanks alot Mike🙂

  39. alyeska39 on July 16, 2008 at 1:09 pm

    Wow, just wow. I was already laughing from the video, and then I read the comments and was almost on the floor. That’s something special right there.

  40. analoggirl on July 16, 2008 at 12:44 pm

    Oh, B4-4. A black stain in Canadian music history. LOL But as ManBearPig stated, you’ll be hard pressed to find a Canadian who doesn’t know the lyrics to this song. You have connections to other Canadian artists though, right? I know you designed the artwork for Saukrates’ mix tape. (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y280/analoggirl1/Saukrates.jpg) Also, if I’m not mistaken, you thank k-os on the CD notes for The Rising Tied…

  41. AnnaB on July 16, 2008 at 12:39 pm

    Oh plz doooon’t! I already had to stop that video after a view seconds before I become a little teen age brat. Are you serious?!
    Don’t try to stop us hearing LP Music! This is like a brainwashing! Ô.o😄

    edit: maby you guys should try to look like b44…;) lots of fans would be soooo greatfull

  42. NeneLP88 on July 16, 2008 at 12:38 pm

    HaHaHa =D

    I’m just feeling a little dumb for having believed that this video was “seriously serious” for a second! xD I was expecting kinda sufference and war scenes, I don’t know.. =S

    However, who the hell are those guys? A 5ive-BackstreetBoys-N’Sync mix?? O.o That sorta monster? Scaaaaary O.O”

    I want to see their names on your next Muxtape!! =)

  43. sandra on July 16, 2008 at 12:35 pm

    EEK! i cannot believe you made so many people wasting so many valuable minutes of their lifes just to watch THIS!!😦
    even worse, i admit i’ve heard of them before, might be about 2 or 3 years ago… but only now i realized how happy i was that they actually disappeared again very quickly… and now you’re bringing back this aweful crap to my mind… ;( you better think of ways to make up for this now, mike!😉

    btw, i would really like to know what you think of AI winner david cook!??!?

  44. nillp on July 16, 2008 at 12:33 pm

    dude, you’re so right.. ur art show has no comparison with the magnitude of this video..!

    i’m definitively going to spread my word about this here in brazil..

    and i thought you might not talking seriously.. do u believe it?!

    anyway. take care.. see u. (:

    love ya ~ mk’nil ♥

  45. Treviun on July 16, 2008 at 12:32 pm

    I remember seeing that music video on TV a long time ago. Don’t you love the 90’s (Decade of the boy bands) xD? Also, what Mike said sounds like something a newspaper would’ve printed a long time ago (Most influential…talked about for decades…etc).😀

  46. kairimai on July 16, 2008 at 12:31 pm

    Oh my..
    I’m scared. There are no words to describe this…thanks Mike!🙂

  47. Kate181 on July 16, 2008 at 12:24 pm

    “the most influenced video”????
    OMG “just laughing”
    Can’t find the right words to comment this (…) vid
    thx Mike for having us this strange experience ;o)

  48. Dori on July 16, 2008 at 12:02 pm

    Thanks Mike…. grins sarcastically

  49. Jhuryn on July 16, 2008 at 11:41 am

    Wow, poor Canada. My ears and eyes are bleeding.

    Side note: What color would you call those fake tans? Gross.

  50. LizzyDizzy on July 16, 2008 at 11:38 am

    really i thought this was like a cool video but…………….. i… i….- wait, this is terrible. i felt so disgusted listening to it like i was served a bowl of cow shit as a thanksgiving day desert.

    this is worse than……i dunno, they said it all. honestly, I’m so speechless.
    God help those people, before the end up as no people.

  51. antje on July 16, 2008 at 11:11 am

    I am REALLY scared. This must be a joke. Please, Mike! Tell me, this must be a joke!!!!!

  52. rockermeg on July 16, 2008 at 11:05 am

    I can’t decide what was more painful about that video:

    -Their voices

    -The harmonies

    -Their scary faces

    -Their awful hair

    -Their clear lack of fashion sense

    I’m gonna go with the latter🙂

    How did they get signed???And to Sony/Columbia aswell…wow,really makes you wonder…

    x

  53. Curiosa on July 16, 2008 at 11:03 am

    reads comments below. lol Thank goodness I didn’t hear it. lol I have seen those guys b4 just can’t remember what video or the song. Probably a good thing. Now those guys look really gay lol Sometimes I really wonder about you Mike. :)~

  54. Morgan on July 16, 2008 at 10:06 am

    Now there’s four minutes of my life I’ll never get back.🙂

  55. rubyred82 on July 16, 2008 at 9:55 am

    Oh dear god. I honestly have no words, ManBearPig and Leiann said it for me.

  56. PinkWater3 on July 16, 2008 at 9:24 am

    Oh god Michael… sometimes I really wonder about you.

  57. ANGELOFRETRIBUTION on July 16, 2008 at 9:16 am

    haha, yes @helene how great the pics lie you, don’t be serious about it.

    those 2 girls still stay beside him…. : )

  58. Helene on July 16, 2008 at 8:39 am

    yeah, this is very important… haha. poor ppl who actually listens it😉

  59. Snails on July 16, 2008 at 8:30 am

    ‘if you get down on me, i’ll get down on you’
    i’m glad they’ve got some sort of morals
    x

  60. Brittney on July 16, 2008 at 7:09 am

    Wow…I don’t think I’ll ever be the same after witnessing that. But seriously, that song’s going to be stuck in my head all day now >_<

  61. paneska on July 16, 2008 at 7:03 am

    00 Mike, wtf was that??? hahaha “the most influenced video”?? hahahah do someone like this group?? wow! they really sucks!! and.. what a video!! i just wonder if the poor man really needed that thing to see these ridiculous guys…. 00

  62. Raspberry on July 16, 2008 at 6:53 am

    I think the burning questions boys and girls is … When are LP doing a cover version??😉

  63. Marlena_LP on July 16, 2008 at 6:41 am

    AAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!!!o_O
    I really watched the whole video, i just thought maybe there would be some sane person in it…it turns out there wasn´t. Why did you do this to us? xD
    P.s.: Just watched LPTV Europe ProRev 08. It´s really cool, now i can say: Hey I´ve been there, at the first ProRev in Europe (Munich actually) =)

  64. cuz on July 16, 2008 at 6:36 am

    haha xD i think i know that song… i’m form Europe but i have a feeling i know the chorus… is it well known around the world?

  65. Hanna on July 16, 2008 at 6:20 am

    hey mike…dis yr new pet project?? ;Þ

  66. Jon on July 16, 2008 at 5:49 am

    This used to be my favourite group til I saw Chester recreate their style in the One Step Closer video. Ah the good times.

    Mike, you seen Spamalot yet? If not, keep that on the list for the next time you hit the UK shores.

    also is the moral of this video that little black kids will always be cooler than boy bands?

  67. Karl on July 16, 2008 at 5:36 am

    i feel so sad for Canadians.. that aint music, honestly

  68. Cheryl_PTT on July 16, 2008 at 5:32 am

    THAT is just wrong on so many levels…..
    Even for a boy band……………… Is this gonna be what the new Linkin Park sound will be for the new album once you get to work on it???

  69. ManBearPig on July 16, 2008 at 5:15 am

    Mike, for real, this is NOT representative of the Canadian music scene. I had to get that out of the way. Although I doubt you’ll find a single Canadian (me included) who doesn’t at least know the chorus to this song…. God damn it, I hate our country sometimes. How on earth someone stumbled upon this, I have no idea. It’s one of the few acts that make Celine Dion look really, really good. I’m laughing like mad, of course, though. B4-4….. Oh Mike. So much win.

  70. crooklynn on July 16, 2008 at 5:14 am

    haha, ok this is how life in the us looks like? hahaha…

    one guy looks like peter andre!

  71. leiann73 on July 16, 2008 at 5:12 am

    Well there you have it, Mike. This is why you need to spend more time in Canada.
    We need more of your influence up North, otherwise this is what we produce!
    Actually, (since I’m Canadian, I’m allowed to know this….) the twins from that group have rebranded themselves as RyanDan and are trying to make a comback!
    Check it out here (if you think you can handle it): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCjpDqceQYA

  72. pbizkit33 on July 16, 2008 at 5:12 am

    I just love how they would say a dirty line and follow it up with some harmless follow up so people don’t think that they are pedophiles.

  73. bec on July 16, 2008 at 5:03 am

    Mike, be honest with yourself and if you want to make a coming out post you know you’ll have the full suport of everyone on LPfiction, maybe not the Linkin Lady sites but I’m pretty sure the rest of your fan base will still love you and accept you for just being yourself.

  74. comfortzone on July 16, 2008 at 4:52 am

    Seriously, this video is really interesting and provoking.
    ^thinker pose^
    I’ll be back if I get the deeper meaning …

  75. Gripa on July 16, 2008 at 4:35 am

    I’m scared O.o

    I watched all video, waiting for something😀 LOL^^

  76. European on July 16, 2008 at 4:28 am

    Mike, please tell me, why you don’t love Europe? Every years June European concerts gives short setlists. But this years – worst, because Europe had modified PR’07 sets, why you not created brand new? And stage design, first euro shows had no lightscreen on the back. P.s. and why Linkin Park was so cold in Lithuania and Latvia? In the concerts was almost no thankies. But, whatever LP playing awesome every day… And BIG SORRY for my english…

  77. Giffy on July 16, 2008 at 4:24 am

    Seriously, i don’t understand… o.O

  78. Ekay on July 16, 2008 at 4:06 am

    SERIOUSLY…OMG !!🙂

  79. MusicalMorphine on July 16, 2008 at 4:00 am

    Ah the potential of our generation. Doesn’t it give you such hope! I’m all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Actually, I’m quite surprised I made it through the whole video.

  80. luciana on July 16, 2008 at 3:56 am

    funny:)) mike u’re so sweet:)…i thought that u started to listen that band:))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

  81. Blaesbjerg on July 16, 2008 at 3:39 am

    Oh my god they are so nasty! :S They are so hillarious that it’s sad. Like your sarcasme xD hah!

  82. rockgecko on July 16, 2008 at 3:05 am

    O..M..G… It’s like something out of a horror movie 😄 Yeah, kinda read the blog and didn’t know whether you were being serious or just sarcastic and then I saw the vid and was like… O.O;

  83. Peryman on July 16, 2008 at 3:05 am

    That’s as serious as you get aye Mike🙂

  84. shinoda_me on July 16, 2008 at 2:35 am

    (giggles) .. i was imagining you dancing like that😄 …… at one point of time, i thought a guy looking from behind the fence, resembled you😐 with the old hair-do though😀

  85. Wave_Rider on July 16, 2008 at 2:34 am

    Erm… Right… Ok… WTF??! God they remind me of Peter Andre!

    Any-body else notice that the guy in the white shirt, tapped the guy in the black shirt ad looked like he was enjoying that far too much?? About 1min 7sec into it.. Has his tongue sticking out etc.. Easy tiger😉

  86. Shinodabestfriend on July 16, 2008 at 2:26 am

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!! ….I knew that your “being serious” will be like this… HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!! oh sh*it Mike… you make me always laugh like a fool! HAHAHAHAHAH!!! ….you’re so puppy… ♥I love Mike Shinoda♥

  87. axrinekey on July 16, 2008 at 2:24 am

    Their hair are weird xD
    Too hard and spiky… /:
    And their too…. muscular… o_o
    (scary. shivers)

    Most of all, I dunno them xD
    B4-4 or something oo;;;
    Never heard of them xD
    (sad for them! >
    <)

  88. Fianwien on July 16, 2008 at 2:14 am

    Nothing special. Just one of those bands like Take That, Nsync, Backstreet Boys etc.. Almost the same type of meaningless words and rhythm.

  89. Sylvie on July 16, 2008 at 2:14 am

    I can see how deeply it influenced you and all of your fans! SERIOUSLY…

  90. Mickey on July 16, 2008 at 1:51 am

    My eyes!! Oh god, Mike, my eyes!!!
    I am scarred for life, now, because of you! Oh man, that was frightening.

  91. murry on July 16, 2008 at 1:40 am

    Wait… No… This is definitely the gayest thing I’ve ever seen.

    Fierce.

  92. murry on July 16, 2008 at 1:30 am

    That is perhaps the gayest thing I’ve ever seen. I can’t wait to show that to my boys. Thanks for pointing this out!

  95. navee on July 16, 2008 at 12:56 am

    WTF WAS THAT??!!

  96. MissNatalie1984 on July 16, 2008 at 12:54 am

    dude, your sense of humor is so whacked…

    here i am thinking this is gonna be something politically important and then i get hit with some overly tanned, bleeched teeth, shitty hair wearing boy band. lol.

    didn’t know boy bands were your thing😉

    take it easy!

  97. I_B_Long on July 16, 2008 at 12:50 am

    i knew your post was dripping with sarcasm, but i sure didnt expect THIS. im still not sure if i should laugh or cry, but i do know that i’ll never again check your blog first thing in the morning.
    (if i get that song stuck in my head all day im blaming YOU!)
    are they serious??

  98. vivalavulva on July 16, 2008 at 12:37 am
