One DirectionZayn Malik’s OJ habit is great and all, but what happens when boy band members hit middle age? They keep making slow jams, just with…slightly different themes.
Or at least they do according to last night’s Late Late Show, in which Bryan Cranston, who’s played archetypes of both the light and dark sides of suburban fatherhood over the years, fronts “M3n Not Boyz,” a three-person “grown man band.” Corden, Late Late Show bandleader Reggie Watts, and lots of dry ice round out the ensemble.
“You need someone to stand up for you,” Cranston croons in the intro. “Someone who still doesn’t believe in ATMs or emojis.” Then there’s the chorus, as simple as it is catchy: “”I’ll make love to you in my minivan/But I can’t be your boy, ’cause I’m a grown-ass man!” Don’t worry, though: M3n Not Boyz may not be teenagers anymore, but they’re still decked out in all white and ’90s-style fauxhawks (in Cranston’s case, at least).
