Backstreet Boys: What shall we do with the drunken sailor?

Cruising with the Backstreet Boys. It sounds like the sort of video that demands credit card details, doesn't it? But it was actually a real thing - a chance to join the low calorie NYSNC on a boat.

What could possibly go wrong?

It turns out once the cruise started the passengers were loaded, the luggage was loaded, the equipment was loaded but nothing was as loaded as AJ McClean.

Indeed, so much had McClean taken advantage of - shall we say - being international waters that cruisers were demanding to be let off and given their money back.

Even on dry land, McClean managed to alienate the crew working on a planned tour. He's now in rehab, of some sort. At least he didn't upset the ship crew, otherwise it might have been Mutiny On The Bounty all over again.

I say "at least". Sure, we'd all love to have seen the movie version.
