BsbsinaThis video of two Chinese students lip-synching to the Backstreet Boy’s "I Want It That Way" is the latest in "viral video" — homemade videos that, for some reason, get passed around, emailed, uploaded, downloaded, and talked about.

Why everybody loves these silly homebaked videos, I do not know.  But they are strangely compelling, like a bad car accident.

Still, for our money, the best viral video is still the "Numa Numa" kid.  See his video here and read about the whole Numa Numa phenomenon here.
