Backstreet Boys - A.j. Mclean Takes A Hit In The Groin For New Tyler Shields Project14 March 2013
The I Want It That Way hitmakers were taking part in a photo project for celebrity snapper Tyler Shields recently when MCLean took a smack to his groin - although the purpose of the brave prank is not clear.
Video footage of the encounter has since been posted online, depicting MCLean bracing himself for the hit by pleading, "Not in the nuts dude!", before relenting and saying, "Ok, just do it quick!"
After Carter strikes him in the privates, the camera pans to fellow Backstreet Boy Kevin Richardson, who quips, "He's got balls of steel!"
