In his latest parody, James Corden spoofs the boy band phenomenon that was so overwhelmingly popular in the 90s and 2000s. A mockumentary, which aired on Thursday on “The Late Late Show,” follows the rise and fall of the (fake) band Thr33way. For this, Corden enlisted some help from comedians Jordan Peele and Nick Kroll. The result is simply hilarious.

“In a time when *NSYNC, Backstreet Boys and others dominated the boy band landscape, three mavericks came together to form Thr33way —a boy band that didn’t hide from its sexuality,” reads the description of the clip on the show’s official YouTube channel.

“Boy band music shouldn’t be about kissing you on the cheek, it should be so much more than that,” says Corden on the doc. And Kroll adds, “We decided to form the first ever honest boy band. We took existing boy band songs, cut through all the innuendo and just got to the heart of what those songs were really about: hardcore sex.”

The trio parodies bands such as *NSYNC, Backstreet Boys and 98 Degrees. Their songs include “I Want a Three Way,” “Quit Playing Games with my Penis,” “Tearin’ Up My Butt,” “End of the Choad,” “Bi-Bi-Bisexual” and “The Butt Stuff.” Watch the funny mockumentary below.
