Backstreet Boys Address 9/11 + Same-Sex Marriage Legalization in ‘In a World Like This’ Video

In their video for ‘In a World Like This,’ the Backstreet Boys shine a spotlight on major events in history, spliced with the band members dancing on a hilltop.

While the boys perform the upbeat track, which delivers a note of hope, a couple plopped on a couch watches one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind, aka the lunar landing of 1969.

The attacks of 9/11, which changed the world as we know it, are also viewed by an urban pair, who cling to one another and try to process what they just saw.

Lastly, same-sex marriage is depicted and celebrated on TV and in real life.

It certainly makes you think about how we see things in the media and in real time. So much for a standard boy-band video!
