Music Video Filmed In Japan #7: Backstreet Boys

Backstreet Boys – Bigger

Backstreet Boys are an American formed boy band, but nowadays are more seen as a vocal harmony group. The band originated from Orlando, Florida. They were first formed back 1993 and all five original members of the band are still active in the band to this day. Backstreet Boys, or as there are known to their fans – BSB, are A. J. McLean, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson and Brian Littrell. Kevin is the only member of the band that had a break to work on other projects, but he returned to the band in 2012. On many of their tours they have played in Japan and during their latest tour (In a World Like This Tour) they performed a total of 11 gigs all over Japan.

The video to Backstreet Boys single Bigger was filmed on the 2nd of October when the band was on a mini tour in Japan to promote their album This Is Us, that the song is included on. The song was recorded in Sweden at the being of 2009. Bigger had its music video premiere via the Backstreet Boys official homepage on the 2nd of November and the single was then released on the 29th November 2009. The video, directed by Frank Borin and filmed in Tokyo, shows different shots of some of Tokyo’s busy streets. The group can also be seen at a maid cafe, singing with all the maids in the background. A games arcade is also shortly seen. Other places that are featured are one of the many temples that can be found in Tokyo, and the band singing karaoke with some Japanese people – I guess just a normal day out in Tokyo for the Backstreet Boys.
