Brace yourselves...not just for the return of the original cheese-tastic boy band but also the inevitable jokes to follow.
A spanking-new photo of New Kids On The Block has surfaced on the band's official website with a countdown clock presumably ticking down the minutes until their Today show appearance on Friday to announce a reunion tour and a new album.
And while still exhibiting the good looks that made 'em popular the first time around, the guys are a little (OK, a lot) older in this promo pic.
As for any signs of them being wiser at this age—that's debatable. Avoiding a reunion under the "Kids" mantle probably would have been the best display of sound judgment.
