The PackageIf you’ve been following the New Kids On The Block via social media, you may have seen their marketing based around a package that was set to open up on January 22nd.

On Christmas day, they simply posted a graphic of an unopened gift on their Facebook page. In the middle of January, there was a photo of a nearly opened gift that said, “Some packages are best opened on January 22, 2013!”

Yesterday, the graphic teased an unveiling. And finally, today, “The Package” was opened. Now, this “package” has become a bit of a double entendre and I’m sure the folks behind the marketing knew it would happen. But, the package is an unboxing of several things including a new single set to hit iTunes next week called “Remix (I Like The)”, a new album called “10″ due in April, and a full-on boy band tour featuring 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men.

The Package? Really? I guess since it’s an all boy-band concert tour, “The Package” isn’t just a creative name. Now, if they added a girl group to the mix, that would be quite the mixed message.

NKOTB showed up on The View today, though only a bad stream of the show is available on YouTube currently. Only for the diehards.
