The Backstreet Boys Kick Off Their Shoes — Literally — In A Fun Game With Ellen

Some of them are better than others.

It's almost summer, and as Ellen DeGeneres says in the latest episode of her show, "it's time to kick off our shoes and relax." And while we're at it, we might as well turn it into a game. Ellen calls it Foot Flickers, and she played it with none other than the Backstreet Boys.

The guys donned comfy slippers in various colors, and the object of the game was to flick them off their feet — in the hope that they'll stick to a giant bullseye. That's easier said than done.

Things started off well enough, with Nick Carter and Brian Littrell getting their slippers close to the center. The other guys had a harder time of it. Kevin Richardson's kick is really something to behold, especially since he made such a show of his strategy — with the other guys explaining that he was a kicker on the high school football team.


In the end, Brian was declared the winner, and he received the kind of gift only Ellen DeGeneres could give — a framed Backstreet Boys poster. As the host mentions at the end of the segment, the group currently has a residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. Maybe they can keep it backstage.
