On June 30, 1997 Everybody (Backstreet's Back) was released as the lead single of Backstreet Boys' second studio album Backstreet's Back

The haunted house treatment of the video was based on a treatment he envisioned for rapper Ice Cube a few months prior, and was inspired by the music video of Michael Jackson's Thriller. Joseph Kahn and the Backstreet Boys wanted Antonio Fargas to portray the bus driver, as they were fans of Starsky & Hutch. The video shoot lasted for 36 hours, with Nick Carter's mummy shot being filmed last. Jive did not get behind the concept of the band in costumes or the $1 million requirements, and did not believe MTV would respect the video. The band ultimately had to put up their own money to shoot the video and had to fight with the label to get reimbursed once it was successful.
