The new One Direction "Drag Me Down" music video is giving some people the old school boyband feels. But does 1D's latest video really channel the Backstreet Boys' "I Want It That Way"?

Well...not entirely...but there are definitely some parallels, most notably the guys in an airplane/NASA hangar singing into the camera.

Something that's not quite the same? One Direction never match their outfits to one another – well, unless you count their orange spacesuits (we don't). The funny thing is that the Backstreet Boys tweeted about the comparison and gave the One Direction guys a shoutout. The "Drag Me Down" video is also being compared to an Armageddon spoof 'NSYNC did back in the day. So mash together the two old-school boybands with One Direction...and there you have it.

Here's the Backstreet Boys:
