Garrett Clayton Plays a Backstreet Boy in New 'Back to the 90s' Parody Video (Exclusive Premiere)

Garrett Clayton has crooned to audiences in Teen Beach Movie and Hairspray Live and now he’s turning into a boy band member for the new “Back to the 90s” parody music video!

The 26-year-old actor joins artist-director Ben Giroux, indie hip-hop artist Jensen Reed, and songwriter Jared Lee in the funny new video, which JJJ is exclusively premiering.

The video starts with Ben and Jensen at a yard sale where a kid asks what a walkman is. When the kid puts in the headphones, he is transported into another generation and 90s babies are treated to their entire childhood in under five minutes.

Garrett and Jared join them to form a Backstreet Boys-like boy band at one point in the video and there’s even a Britney Spears impersonator!

“Back to the 90s is an homage to the decade we grew up in. Through a completely original song, we highlight multiple genres of 90s music within the same track (including hip-hop, grunge, R&B, and boy bands). The project is a love letter to our childhoods, two years in the making,” Ben said in a statement. Jensen added, “The music video features throwback animation, Walkmans, bleached tips — we tried to make it as authentically 90s as possible. We think it’s going to be a hit with our generation.”

Make sure to see the album cover parodies in the gallery!
