Vampiress Music Video:"Backstreet's Back"

"Everybody" (Backstreet's Back)
The Backstreet Boys
Backstreet's Back
Released in 1997

In this Halloween themed music video from 90's boy band the Backstreet Boys (that's the one that didn't have Justin Timberlake in it for those keeping score), the guys tour bus breaks down in front of a creepy house where they have to stay the night.  As the song goes on, each member of the group takes on the persona of a different classic horror monster including The Frankenstein monster, The Mummy, The Wolfman, Mr Hyde and The Phantom of the Opera.  For it to be included in this blog of course that means one has to be a vampire.
In this case it's band member Howie Dorough who played the role of Dracula in the video and you can't have Dracula without your three brides (well you can but if you want to get mentioned in this blog you can't).  As always Dracula being the greedy guy he is always has his mind on a girl outside of the three he already has and in this case it's the lovely Josie Maran.
 Though she does not succumb to boy band Dracula in this video she does become one of his brides in the 2004 film Van Helsing so you can call this foreshadowing.
