Big Time Rush has gone back in time. Sort of. In their latest music video for their song “Like Nobody’s Around” they make a montage of the boy bands past until today.
They start in the black and white era, and judging by the sign in the background, it’s the 30’s or 40’s, a tribute to the early beginnings of rock and pop. Fast forward to a blue and white setting and they become a younger version of The Temptations.
Guys, the 1970’s called and they want their fashion back. Bell bottoms and elevator shoes means we’ve welcomed in the Disco Era and bands like the Jackson 5. I respect the 70’s, but they can keep the fashion.
Now we get current. New Kids On The Block is next to be shown and NKOTB even tweeted Big Time Rush a still from the video, saying “you’re welcome” in reference to letting them copy their music video.
Alright, raise your hand if you know who the Backstreet Boys and N*SYNC are. Who doesn’t? Well, BTR covers them both. From the pure white outfits remnant of BSB’s “I Want It That Way” to the dance steps and bleached tips from N*SYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye”.
Present day. Big Time Rush has had 2 headlining tours and one of summer fair dates. So, they revisit themselves. First, 2011, their simple summer fair tour. Then the first headliner, the Better With U tour. Finally, the Big Time Summer Tour this past year all together in one shot.
But what makes a music video is the music, not the video. This song is about letting go and having fun as if there was nobody around to watch you and judge you. It’s about cutting loose and being who you are because the only person you will ever truly be is yourself.
