In behind-the-scene video for their photoshoot with photographer Tyler Shields, the Backstreet Boys members are seen doing a stunt a la 'Jackass' stars.
The reunited Backstreet Boys show their bro-mance in an unusual way. In a "Jackass"-style stunt, Nick Carter is caught on camera hitting bandmate A.J. McLean, who stands against the wall, in the crotch with a baseball bat.
"A.J. take it! Just take it!" says someone in the room. "Just do it quick," the boybander who just welcomed his first child last fall braves himself before Nick swings the bat while Kevin Richardson and some other people look on.
The video is shared by photographer Tyler Shields as a behind-the-scene look at his recent photoshoot with the boybanders. "For all the amazing @backstreetboys fans check this out," he tweeted, "and RT if you want to see more!!!!"
The boys are currently preparing a new album which might be due later this year. It will be their first album as a five-piece group since 2007's "Unbreakable". Their previous effort "This Is Us" was released in 2009 without Richardson on the lineup.
