As it was prophesied, the coronavirus has ushered in a new era of art, albeit marked by tone-deaf celebrity videos along with bathtubs, basements, and broken records. Add this video to the museum too. New Kids on the Block brought together their … friends … Boyz II Men, Naughty by Nature, Big Freedia and Jordin Sparks for a new quarantune called “House Party” with an even more chaotic music video. All you need to know about the song is that it’s “for those about to lose their minds,” according to Donnie Wahlberg. But let’s break down the rich text that is this music video.

We open with a shot of Donnie with Boyz II Men singing in the background, like they went back to the ’80s and hit up the Walmart photo studio.

Just like that, you’re four and a half minutes closer to getting out of quarantine. But at what cost?
