New Kids On The Block release “Remix (I Like The)” music video, watch below. The New Kids on the Block have debuted their music video for Remix (I Like The). It features Artemis Pebdani (of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia fame) playing the “lonely wallflower” who injects new life into a house party.
It’s a catchy ode to reinvention. NKOTB will be going on tour this summer with 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men. The hilarious video, which feels more like a short film dream sequence, opens with a shot of a suburban house party pimped out with pastel decorations, where we meet a seriously bored-looking Artemis Pebdani (who plays, yep, Artemis on “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia”). In her new role as “The Lonely And Awkward Wallflower At The Party,” Artemis looks pretty miserable among the wallpaper-wallflower party guests. But hopefully NKOTB will be along to rectify the situation immediately.
As Artemis escapes to the restroom to rock out at the sink, we flash to NKOTB looking very boy band of 2013, hipster-handsome (Donnie’s even donning some sweet glasses!) in uniform formal wear. (Not easy for a boy band that’s been around since the EARLY 1980s, lest you forget.) Artemis blows back into the party, this time shaking things up with a #YOLO-induced dance routine, interspersed with scenes of her at this NKOTB concert. After taking an impromptu dip, Artemis suddenly emerges from the house pool, writhes around, and throws her hair back and forth in a move that’s very Willow Smith meets Tawny Kitaen in a Whitesnake video. Next up? A dance with Donnie, while a child channeling Michael Jackson breaks it down in the background with a rightfully enthused piano player. The video’s a much funnier and less serious approach than what we’re used to from the men of New Kids, and you’ll totally want to drop everything and see it immediately — if only for Joey McIntyre’s continually inspiring head of hair.
