First of all, let me just say that one of the reasons I love this blog is that even in 2012 we will still chop it up about all things New Kids related. I love y'all for that. I don't really know why we all still care so, so very much but I guess the saying is true: once a Blockhead, always a Blockhead.
I was on Facebook...as always...when I noticed that our girl Andrea *waves at Andrea* posted that she had just seen Jordan Knight in an Old Navy commercial.
*Insert Scooby Doo inquisitive response here*
I then hightailed it to YouTube where lo and behold I discovered this:
Yup! That's happening. And I think it's great. I love it. I just have some questions:
1. Am I the only one that got hyped hoping that once Jordan came out that they were going to go into "Give It to You", choreography and all? I mean the carnival set up was right there! It was right there!
2. What is going on with the Knight brothers and their flawless skin in 2012? No he did not just roll out on that piano looking like he is fresh off the Magic Summer Tour!
3. If I've heard it once, I've heard it a million times: black don't crack. With that being said, can I please resubmit my claim that Jordan Knight is half DeBarge?
4. I pray the Lord's resurrecting power every time I get to "Taurus". HAAAAAAAAAA!!!! I was *DEAD*! I haven't heard anyone mention their zodiac sign like that since, well...
"By you babyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy"
Was I the only one that quickly thought of this? Apparently I wasn't because as HispanicBusiness.com mentioned (this just keeps getting more and more random) "all New Kids fans know this one from the boy band's first ever album, the self-titled, New Kids on the Block. Fans also know his favorite color was blue, he's left-handed and he loved ketchup." I am not mad at Rebecca Villaneda for that throwback reference. Like I said, once a Blockhead, always a Blockhead (especially if it also reminded you of when they did commercials for Boston's Bay Bank in the 80's.)
What did you all think about the commercial? I know some of you were NOT ready.
