Back in 1999, a man went to Canada’s Wonderland amusement park and made a music video to a Backstreet Boys song. This guy SERIOUSLY jammed to the song, leaving the staff at the video booth speechless. (You will be too.) A park visitor who saw the performance displayed on a TV monitor begged for a copy, using all of his spending money for the day to get it. Now, 14 years later, he uploaded the video onto youtube, and it has gone viral. Meanwhile, who knows where this guy is, and if he even knows this video is up. Yikes.
This is further proof that the whole mantra that we all ‘dance like no one watching’ is not the best advice.
On one hand, I really feel bad that this guy’s private dance video is all over the web. On the other hand, this is one hell of an entertaining video.
Scroll down for the video, and below that, the uploader’s description of the story.

“So here’s the story… For those of you from Southern Ontario, it’s likely that you went to Canada’s Wonderland in Toronto during the late 90’s/early 2000’s in the Summertime. I have very fond memories of the roller coasters, waterpark and food at the amusement park. One year, I went with some friends and we came across the new video karaoke; essentially, you pay them some money and they create a blue screen video of you and your friends singing a song. They would broadcast the song, including the videos of whoever was singing at the time, on the outside of the building.They had all the hits at the time, including a number of songs by the Backstreet Boys. While I never had the guts to go in and sing something, we happened to be outside the place when this guy went in for his solo. The park staff were stunned, and my friends and I were on the ground crying with laughter! Needless to say, I wanted this video, and the staff were kind enough to oblige. I spent the rest of my spending money for the day on the VHS copy of his performance, and to this day, I still consider it money well spent. It’s been hiding in a box in my basement for years, and today, I converted it to digital. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you WTF Backstreet’s Back. Enjoy!”
