The Backstreet Boys have new music out. And if that sentence wasn’t enough to get your attention, this certainly will be: To promote their new album, “DNA,” the Backstreet Boys performed one of their classic hit songs, “Everybody” … while dressed as chickens and replacing all the lyrics with “bawk” noises.

So, did they convince you to check out their latest album? They probably could have done that even without the chicken suits!
