Are you an NYSNC person or a Backstreet Boys person? Trick question!

NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys are friends now. And they say there was never actually any rivalry. Nick Carter told Buzzfeed that the whole feud thing was "strictly the media being bored." Okay, Nick Carter, but I feel like you're gaslighting us. We were all there. And even if Lance Bass and Brian Littrell weren't dance battling, the public was still divided into contentious factions. (I was Team Backstreet Boys, and I was incorrect.)

But that's all in the past, and now most everyone from both bands has moved on to not being famous. For example, when you google "Kevin Richardson," the zookeeper comes up before the Backstreet Boys member.

Somewhere out there, we all have a zookeeper doppleganger waiting to steal our life.

Yesterday, Backstreet Boys members Nick Carter and AJ McLean were with NSYNC member Joey Fatone at Comic-Con because they're all working on a project together. And though this would have been the perfect opportunity for a supergroup, the trio is instead working on a...zombie horror Western movie.

According to AOL, the film is called Dead Seven and will air on SyFy. It's being written and directed by Nick, and he and Joey will play cross-boy-band heroes. AJ, who everyone will recall as the bad boy of BSB, will play "the apprentice to the main villain." Kind of shitty that he couldn't just be the villain. But hopefully the apprenticeship opportunity will help him develop his antagonizing skills for when the right evil position comes along.

Buzzfeed hung out with all three band members and got them to record a couple goofy singing Vines. Imagine saying that sentence to your 11-year-old, boy band-obsessed self.
