The Try Guys 90s Boyband Music Video Challenge


We’ll be joined
by celebrity expert judge, Lance Bass, Lance Bass,
Lance Bass, Lance Bass. Oh my God, oh my God,
oh my God, oh my God. Let’s go. This week on “Squad Wars”, we’re at a professional
sound stage – in Southern California.
– Okay, this is it, – let’s get playback.
– We’re about to blow your mind. Two amazing squads each paired with one of us compete to face the music and get NSYNC
with the goal to become the ultimate boy band. Now get ready to dance
Eugene’s off. In the end, they will be judged and only one will win
the most coveted reality show award ever,
the Tryphy. Cue music. ♪♪ Welcome to “Squad Wars”, where you’ll never have
to pick a fight because we pick it for you. Think of us
as your battle baristas serving up hot competition. What is this voice
that we’re doing? – Don’t worry about it.
– Okay. Well, we’re the Try Guys
and each week we challenge two squads
to a competition unlike they’ve ever seen before. Eugene and I
will be your hosts for today, which means Zach and Ned will be joining the squads. Zach, who will be
your chums for the day? Guys, I am so excited.
We have joining us the cast from one of the greatest movies
of our, nay, any generation. From “Hook”,
we have the Lost Boys. I’m talking about Jimmy Madio, Ahmad Stoner, and Dante Basco, aka Don’t ask, No Nap, and Rufio. What’s, up Try Guys?
We shot a move years ago but we hung out our whole lives, so I have no doubt that
we’re gonna work well together. Once a Lost Boy,
always a Lost Boy. The crow call is iconic. Can you–can you just
teach it to me? You can fly, you can fight, and you could [makes noise] [makes noise] – There it is.
– That just gave me the biggest nostalgia boner. So Ned, do you finally
have a squad you can talk to about marriage
and stuff with? Yes, it’s very exciting, Eugene. I’m here with three stars
from “The Bachelor”. Please Welcome Jake Pavelka, Kiptyn Locke, and Caila Quinn. I am stoked to be here today with Jake and Caila. Our squad is gonna bring
the energy. So you three are bachelors,
I’m married, will that be an issue? You could give us
some tips, right? I’m honored, of course. Zach? Ned? Please join your squads. Yeah. We’re going Big Try today. You’re gonna be choreographing and lipsyncing in your very own ’90s boy band music video. – What?
– That’s my worst nightmare because I’m useless
when it comes to dancing. Boy bands
are the ultimate squads and their videos
are the ultimate showcase – of their skills.
– So for a little inspiration, we’re gonna be beaming in one of the all-time great boy band members from NSYNC. That’s right,
our in-studio expert will be none other than
Lance Bass. – Shut up.
– Lance Bass? Oh my God, oh my God,
oh my God, oh my God. What’s going on, Try Guys? He knows our name. – Hello, squads.
– Hey, Lance. You’re gonna have one day
to go from newbies to heartthrobs. Now, once your videos are done,
we’re gonna be judging you on personality
and performance. As well as the heart, passion, and overall squad work that you bring to the Big Try. I’ll see you soon and good luck. Thank you, Lance.
Let’s do it. Your videos have to achieve
the classic boy band look, dancing and lip syncing
to the music. – Good luck.
– You can do it.
– That’s awesome. Eugene will be demonstrating some boy band
inspired dance moves. It will be your job to copy him. Mess up and you’ll be out faster
than Zayn left One Direction. – Oh.
– Ooh. The squad with at least
one member left – standing will win.
– By winning the Mini Try, you will have an advantage
in the Big Try. You will be able
to choose your props for your music video first. – All right.
– Yeah. We got this, guys. – We got this.
– Last man standing. After he teaches,
I start eliminating. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. The first choreography
is pretty easy. When Eugene turned around
and faced us, it got tougher for me
and I completely lost my mind. All right, that’s enough review, I want to see the performance. Get ready to dance
your jeans off. Jimmy, it ain’t no lie, baby. Bye, bye, bye. – Get out, Jimmy.
– It’s gonna be a long day– – Get out.
– –for me, dude. – All right.
– ♪ Now you heard it ♪ ♪ All before ♪ ♪ And can’t take no more ♪ I saw a little misstep from one of our own, Ned. – What?
– This is not a democracy. – This is a Keithtatorship.
– This is… – Don’t you dare touch me.
– Bullcrap. Don’t you dare touch me.
– This is Bullcrap. Get out of here. We are tied at three each. Let’s get to it. ♪ I’ll do anything ♪ ♪ To stop you walking away ♪ – Kiptyn, you’re gone.
Get out of there. – Dude, there’s no way.
– Gone, goodbye. Again, I want to see it again. ♪ Don’t walk away ♪ Sorry Zach,
you’re gone over there.
– (BLEEP) Also Jake, you’re out of there. I don’t know if I was hiding
behind somebody but I don’t think I got it once
and I should’ve been the first one off
to be honest with you. Jake, what happened?
– Jake, Zach goodbye. It’s down to two against one. ♪ I want you to stay ♪ Ahmad, you’re gone,
get out of there. – Final showdown.
– ♪ Never will make you cry ♪ ♪ Even though you must go ♪ ♪ Whoa ♪ ♪ Baby, please say no to go ♪ Caila, no.
Boo, you’re out. The winner of the Mini Try
is Rufio. Yes. Come on, Lost Boys, come on. – Yes.
– Congratulations to the Lost Boys Squad. It’s time to start your training
for the Big Try. And Keith has written a song especially for you today. Yes, it is called Love 4 Men and I’m counting on both of you to make it a massive viral hit. I want to be writing
for Katy Perry after this or at least Tyler Perry,
some Perry. And Eugene will be
your dance instructor for the day, so learn quick. Let’s do this. First things first,
you’ve got to hear the song. Start thinking about what– how it speaks to you. ♪ I love you ♪ ♪ I love you ♪ ♪ I also love you ♪ ♪ And I love you too ♪ – ♪ Yeah ♪
– The lyrics are so adorable, are you kidding me?
I want some man to sing that to me. ♪ For you to love four men ♪ Here are the lyrics
to your song. I’m trying to learn
these lyrics, it’s just not clicking
for some reason and I’m hoping it all
comes together in the end. Boy bands have four main roles. We have the heartthrob,
we have the bad boy, we have the clown,
the person who’s happy. And then we have the cutie. – I’ll do the bad boy.
– Are you the heartthrob– you’re the bad boy? You’re taking the bad boy? I seen him punch people. Oh, goodness. That’s a bad boy right there. I’ve always been friendzoned – because I’m cute.
– So we have heartthrob. Clearly if you’re the leader
of the Lost Boys, you got to be the leader
of the Lost Boys boy band. So that makes me the clown. Hey, the clown is good.
Like, I wanna see– give me a smile. Yeah, that’s it. Oh, okay. I feel like I’m mostly the cutie
for most part. – You’re the cutie.
– Okay. I think Jake’s always been
a heartthrob. If you go there,
I’ll go bad boy. – Are you good with that?
– That leaves me– – It’s a plan, it’s a plan.
– –as the clown. I think the clown
is fitting for you. You got big red shoes already. – Yeah.
– Perfect. You know, today, we’re not just
Lost Boys anymore, we’re Lost Men. We’re Lost Boys to Men. I think ultimately with us,
you know, we’re actors, so we can bring in
the character work. All right, guys.
Get out there, get to dancing, go on, put it in your body. What? The music. Put it in your body. – Reconsider that one.
– What’s confusing about put it in your body? Dating Squad. Right now, we are gonna develop
some choreography and group performance moves. This is Boy Band 101,
welcome to class. You wanna get close enough
so that they can get that effect, oh,
I’m like right here – in your face, girl.
– Right. Yo, I’m like right here
in your face, girl. Exactly, there we go, Ned. This is hilarious. The heartthrob sings, we got our wandering happening. Cutie, so you can always go
straight back and they’ll come back in.
And the heartthrob – one more time.
– ♪ Open your eyes ♪ So the choreography
is a little bit easier than the lyrics, I don’t know
about stringing both of them together,
that’s really gonna be hard. So Ned, you have to remember
that line. Better get in line faster. Now. Let’s start with the bad boy
over here. Maybe hit a pose. Let’s see the heartthrob. Let’s see the cutie. – Make me laugh, Zach.
– Pose. Surprise, surprise,
Eugene’s being bossy as hell. – Cute, stand up.
– Ow. I love you, I love you. ♪ I still love you ♪ And cross Jimmy. This is really advanced stuff. Our spacing is off,
we’re bumping into each other. My only hope is that
Dating Squad is all as good as dancers as Ned is. Which is bad,
Ned’s a really bad dancer. [thud]
– Oh, Okay. See? I told you Ned
was terrible at dancing. We’ve learned
our character work, we’ve obviously crushed the choreography. Now it’s time to boogey on down, film the scenes
that are gonna make up our music video. All right, Lost Boys Squad you have won the Mini Try.
– Yes. Which means you get first choice
in your props. Have at it, get your props. – Let’s do it.
– All right. The drum, the sand castle,
maybe these. Do we wanna play
with these giant balls yet or– Yeah, we’ll deal
with the balls later. Great. We’re at a little bit
of a disadvantage because we didn’t get to pick
our props first but we’ve got some
of the biggest heartthrobs and we’ve got Ned. Let’s get pumped,
let’s get pumped, let’s get pumped,
yeah, yeah, yeah. – Squad, squad–
– Squad, squad, squad, squad, squad,
squad, squad. – Are we ready?
– Yeah, playback. All right.
Let’s get playback, please. Right now remember
just be having fun, you know? Some scenes.
What’s going on here? We got to do–what are you–
what are you doing? Zach, in his past life, he really, really,
wanted to be in a boy band because when he went for it,
it was scary. Like, he really,
really went for it. Get close up and just start
noshing on those fish. Oh. Oh, God. I think we got it.
[cough] Why’d you make me bite
that plastic fish? Don’t worry about it
[indistinct] let’s get out of here,
great work. Cue music. ♪ I love you ♪ It’s all about the B roll. That’s where you come alive
as a squad, that’s where you really
distinguish yourself as characters. Oh cute, yeah, there we go. Honestly, the beach scene
was a little unorganized but the closer,
the slow mo pillow fight, that’s gonna be victory lane. – That was an amazing shot.
– Thank you. Think about your parts,
think about – the emotion you have, okay?
– Yeah, okay. Most importantly,
it’s about having fun together. Boy bands are best friends. Remember, faces. Yeah, yeah. In the close ups, it’s important to nail the lip syncing. I’m looking around
and we really look – like a boy band.
– I love the love in your eyes. ♪ I love the love in your eyes ♪ But we’re not a real boy band, so Keith has to keep feeding us
every line. When we go out on a date. ♪ When we go out on a date ♪ ♪ We pick you up in a bus ♪ – ♪ No, it’s not– ♪
– Get in there, Ned. – ♪ –polygamy ♪
– ♪ Girl, we’re polygam-us ♪ Are you ready? You’re ready.
Everyone’s ready? Okay. This is it, let’s get playback. Look, my squad,
we’re not reality show models. So in our close up,
we’re gonna bring the energy, we’re gonna bring the fun, we’re gonna drizzle you
with dazzle. You’re gonna be
drowning in dazzle. ♪ No it’s not polygamy ♪ ♪ Girl, we’re polygamy-us ♪ – Come on.
– ♪ I got to say ♪ ♪ I can’t see it any other way ♪ Get hyped, yeah. ♪ Lying on the beach,
sharing ceviche ♪ ♪ Hey ♪ ♪ I wanna love you four ways ♪ That was it, that was it. That was it, man.
You crushed it. You know, the one thing
that you guys might have over Lost Boys Squad
is a little more sexuality. – Yeah.
– Yeah? So really make love
to that camera. – Yeah?
– Make the cameramen (BLEEP) Yeah.
Sorry. Sorry cam- Sorry, guys. Okay.
That was gross. All right, never mind
but you know what I mean. Okay. Go. Sexy walk. Very sexy, yes. The biggest strength we have
as a squad is that we all are masters
of love. We’ve been on The Bachelor,
The Bachelorette and so we know what it’s like
to, you know, flirt with an audience
and flirt with each other and I think that’s our strength. Look in that camera
and down, Jake. Great, very sexy. Go, yeah. Right up in that lens. Oh. We’re shooting the choreography and we are still
not getting this down. We are running out of takes but we can’t stop messing up. Look, if we don’t nail this,
we don’t have a chance of winning this episode.
And if we don’t win this episode,
I don’t win a single episode in “Squad Wars”.
And then I have to go home and tell my parents
that I got a YouTube Red show and didn’t win
a goddamn episode. Last time with this
low angle camera. So get up in its face. This is our last shot,
I feel like it’s only right. Dante, can you give us
a pump up speech? We’re gonna bring it back
to Neverland one time, – one time for Robin.
– One time for Robin. One time for Robin
on the bangarang. On three.
One, two, three. Bangarang. Cue the music. We really pulled together. I think it worked,
I hope it worked. With the videos in the can,
it’s time to take our squads back to the Squad Wars studio. And an extra special thanks to our two experts today, myself and Gene. – Who’s Gene?
– Eu-gene. Oh. Okay. So we were just
in a sound stage in Hollywood, now we’re
at the Squad War studios, blah, blah, blah,
boring, boring. Who needs exposition
when you got Lance Bass Lancey-B! Could you tell us
about life as a pop star, what was that like? Ugh, it was just hell.
Hell on the road. No, are you kidding me?
It was incredible. We were teenagers
traveling the world with your best friends. Always, you know,
playing jokes on each other. I thank God there
was no social medial back then because we probably would’ve
been in a lot of trouble. A quick reminder to both squads
that we’ll be judging you today on performance, personality. Not to mention the overall
heart, passion, and squad work
that you brought to– The Big Try. All right,
that’s plenty of exposition, Lance Bass is here.
So let’s go ahead and get to watching
Lost Boys Squad first ever music video, Love 4 Men. Hey girl, this is the Lost Boys, we’re all grown up now. This is Rufio, Don’t Ask, No Nap, and Zach. And we’re fulfilling

what do you think? Dude, I got sweaty. I say we start voting
on the individual categories. Dating Squad,
how do you feel like you did in the personality department? We’re not actors, you know, so it’s more real, in reality. For our heartthrobs,
I’d go home with him at a bar but I think
you got me pregnant. – Damn.
– Kind of agree with you here. You definitely give me
the Nick Lachey heartthrob but Dante here,
he appeals to all the ladies, the sensitive heartthrob, and I think that goes
a little further with the ladies out there, so– So he’ll get you pregnant and help you raise it. Yeah. You know,
I wanna jump to the cutie. You were incredibly cute but there’s no comparison. Like, you blew us away. That putting
that heart together, I mean, I think
the whole world melted. Going to the bad boys.
Well, stylized, I think Jimmy
might have won this one. Also, I love it
when a good bad boy – gets that stomach out.
– Oh, yes he did– he did give a lot of skin. Your stomach is better
than mine. Or you can just not wear a shirt and not need to do that. Oh. – Shots fired.
– He got shade. – That was shade.
– Shots fired. And finally, the clown. I’ll let you guys
battle it out. Well, what’s there to battle?
I was a funnier clown. You were like a homeless person. I know for a fact Joey Fatone
wore that outfit once. – Lance, back me up here.
– I mean, he probably did, yeah. It’s very similar, yeah. I know for a fact people wore
their ties around their heads in the ’90s.
Lance, back me up here. If it was bedazzled,
I think it will be really good. I love the both of you
just keep trying to get Lance. Because his is the only vote
that matters. Let’s go ahead and do our vote
on personality. Now Lost Boys, I feel like, especially your look,
I could get any still from that video
and I can just go one, two, three, four, done. Very simple, Lost Boys Squad. Obviously, I got pregnant
by one group, which was amazing.
The Lost Boys Squad. – Oh, no.
– What? It was all in the style
and that’s what edged The Lost Boys into winning
this category. We got the Lance vote.
We got the Lance vote. As we move
into the next category. Performance. Let’s start over here
with The Lost Boys. I think our performance
really benefited from each other’s energy,
you know, we wanted to make it feel
like a really fun time. A lot of my footage,
I just–I made–a nightmare. – A buffoon.
– Yes, that’s the perfect word. – I was a–
– Nincompoop. Sure. I mean, we could stop
with the insults. – I think buffoon is fine.
– Idiot. – No, I…
– Ignoramus. Yeah. Lance, it hurts more
hearing it from you. So let’s talk about you guys. How do you feel
your performance was in your music video? Our choreography looked
more difficult, not always a good thing
but, you know, we threw it out there
and, well, I think we nailed it. I think our chorus
was more memorable, I–looking back on it, I’m not quite sure
what their course was other than, like, thrusting. – You remembered it.
– Nailed it. – There you go.
– Apparently, very memorable. I think it’s time to vote
for performance. Again, both of these performance
were really good. So good, that you guys
blew the (BLEEP) roof off this place. You didn’t pay
the electric bill. (BLEEP) we can’t use any of this
so I can swear as much as I (BLEEP) – We good?
– We’re good, we’re rolling. So we were just about to vote on the performance
and all the lights in the studio went out. So we’ve got some
great new lights, they’re incredibly harsh. – Yeah.
– Everybody looks okay. – Beautifully lit by…
– Lamps Bass. Lamps Bass Incorporated. So performance. Lost Boys, I thought you did
a really great job. You were also incredible,
Dating Squad. When you got it down,
it was so expressive and it was so on
and you guys at least got it really good once and that’s kind of what matters. Like I say,
it’s always how you finish. And for that, I got to give it
over to my Dating Squad. I think Lost Boys
sometimes felt like you were parodying everything as opposed to the Dating Squad which was authentically
trying to live in those performances.
So I have to give this one – to Dating Squad.
– It’s up to Lance, I guess. I’m going to have to go
with the Dating Squad. All right. Oh, my God.
That’s awesome. But what really matters
is the overall heart, passion, and squad work that you brought to the Big Try and for that,
we’re gonna need to deliberate together without you
all involved. So if you would please
reach under you seat and grab the noise
canceling headphones and pop those on those noggins. Obviously, we’re split here,
you know. We have great performance,
great character. The challenge was to make
a boy band music video. – Mm-Hmm.
And right now,
I think we lean this way to Dating Squad
because their video– – Magic happened.
– It was magic. But in terms of the NSYNCness I think Lost Boys Squad
was way more together. And like you said, you know,
when you pause that video which one
is the Great American Boy Band and there’s one
of those groups right now that I could say I would think
is the Great American Boy Band. Sounds like we’re all
in agreement here. Are we ready to make
our decision? – Yes.
– You could say that we are… – NSYNC.
– Yes. Why don’t we have our squads remove those headphones? Squads, I wanna start out
by saying both of you
had a challenge today of making a boy band music video
and you succeed. But one of you is a loser. The winner will receive
the Tryphy. Anyone who holds this
or touches it will forever walk in greatness. – I feel the power.
– But do not worry. The losers do not go home
empty handed. The losers will be
taking home with them the case of bulbs that we had here today on set that all broke. So we have to have a winner. And today’s winner of the ’90s boy band music video Big Try is… the Lost Boys Squad. Congratulations.
I’m sorry, Dating Squad. You guys really had
the it factor, you brought it but we were won over by the incredible character work
and ultimately, the great music video
that you all made. Thanks so much to both squads
for joining us today and a very special thanks to– Lance Bass, he’s wonderful. Guys, we’ll see you next time
on “Squad Wars” where we’ll be live
from Lance Bass’s apartment. ♪ I also love you ♪ ♪ And I love you too ♪ See you next time
on “Squad Wars”. ♪ We all love you ♪ ♪ And we’d like
to offer the chance ♪ ♪ For you to love four men ♪

  1. You guys are so lame for still featuring their videos. Jumping on the bandwagon because their more popular than u

  2. It took me 7 minutes to realise I knew Dante Basco because he’s the voice of Prince Zuko. Got there though 🔥

  3. They should all do different songs because it’s annoying hearing the same song three times in a row

  4. I had this on in the background while I was working on homework and I just kinda went “Why is Zuko in a try guys video?” And then I actually looked and it was Dante Basco

  5. One time my husband was at a convention and Prince Zuko called me on the phone and boy did my heart flutter.

  6. This felt very America’s next top model to me. Idk why but I feel like the try guys should be the judge on some spoof show to it lol, staring Eugene instead of tyra😂

  7. My friend tried to kiss the screen when Eugene came on but it changed and she kissed the other boy and she just sat there saying plz forgive me ?!?!?!
