Boy Band Lunch Break - Handsome Donkey

It all started with talk of Posh & Becks moving to Los Angeles. Then it was about Posh and the Spice Girls and their horrible videos. The conversation turned to boy bands of the same era (give or take) and their horrendous videos that often seemed sexually, well, questionable. LAist has now officially laughed ourselves silly watching these old videos and have to share them with you. They have a certain, "this can't possibly be for real" quality to them. So each day this week at lunch we are sharing a boy band classic video with you.

Ok, so Handsome Donkey isn't a REAL BOY BAND. But it's Friday and in the spirit of "Dick in a Box" we thought we would bring you the comical and musical stylings of these four young Hollywood guys.

When I was sick in a bed a few weeks ago, I fell into a haze of short videos and watched everything Handsome Donkey has out there and then sent their site onto all of my friends. And in perfect "boy band" banter, we then called "dibs" on the different guys, because what's a boy band after all without distinct and different personalities that appeal to each of us differently. Ah yes, the 13 year-old in each of us. They're funny on film but are they this funny in person? A little more research might be required...

If they sound familar, the site recently got a mention on Daily Candy!
