Music video[edit]

The video starts with a montage reminiscent of the opening of a TV sitcom. The boys are in their apartment doing ordinary things, and as the frame freezes on each of them, their name is displayed—Justin is making a sandwich, Lance is making papier-mâché, JC is playing the guitar, Joey is reading "Girlymag" and Chris is trying to get his dog to pull him on his wagon. Lance sees an advertisement that Johnny Correcto, a famous producer, is looking for a new star. The boys get excited and drive to the audition where they get turned around at the reception desk. Outside and dejected, they see a girl with a bouquet of flowers and come up with a plan. They return dressed as a hair band and while Justin distracts the receptionist with the flowers, the rest sneak in and play for Johnny before getting kicked out. (One member is dressed as Slash and another appears to be Axl Rose of Guns N' Roses. The rest of the members appear to be dressed as Twisted Sister.)

In the rest of the video, they are able to figure out where Johnny is and attempt to play for him but are always rejected by the producer and the audience present. They show up to a dinner for international dignitaries and play as The Jackson 5. They show up at a pool party dressed as the Spice Girls. They also appear as rappers. Finally, at the end, they dance as themselves, with much applause and cheering from the audience. Johnny shows up with a contract for them.
