The Fake Jonas Brothers

The leaders of the Jr. High ministry that I work with are really freakin' hilarious. They are always, always creating a character and acting it out... which I really think is often funnier to the leaders then to the kids. I don't really know how it started, but last year three of them created a music video as the "Fake Jonas Brothers" probably just as a funny video for the jr. highers. It was just funny pointlessness but the video became a cult phenomenon on youtube and... now it's a huge deal.

It's hilarious because now they totally promote themselves and yet freely act it out as a big joke. Apparently the real Jonas Brothers heard about the Fake Jonas Brothers and the Fake Brothers ended up IN the 3-d Jonas Brothers movie that every pre-pubescent girl in the country must be talking about. If you do go to their website and watch their music videos, be warned that the "Flu Bug" video is DISGUSTING and is targetted to a jr. high guy audience.

Last week the real JoBros showed up in Dallas and the fake JoBros went to the red carpet - hilarious. Seeing a six foot four guy with a black wig on standing among jr. high girls and screaming as if he actually cared .... cracks me up. Here are photos of the event: http://www.flickr.com/photos/89405243@N00/sets/72157614610460590/, and here are the Fake Jobros at a Dallas radio interview with the real Jobros.

For the record, I have no idea what the real Jobros sing, I only know Jr. High girls love them. :)

Funny!! I don't know what the real Jonas brothers sing either... we have missed out on a lot of pop culture since our move to Russia!

Spencer is almost finished with DTS... he has been in Moldova doing outreach.
