Two young Asian men lip synch at a karaoke bar in Tokyo.
As Hiro and Ando sit in a karaoke bar, two young men are singing. They are dressed in red basketball jerseys and singing "I Want It That Way" by the Backstreet Boys. Though the singers in the bar are probably Japanese, they closely resemble in the Back Dorm Boys, two amateur Chinese students who gained moderate Internet fame with their lip synched version of "I Want It That Way" and other pop songs.
- The Back Dorm Boys consist of Wei Wei ("the big one") and Huang Yi Xin ("the small one"). A third student, Xiao Jing ("dorm boy"), is in the background of most of the videos.
- The duo on Heroes wear Houston Rockets jerseys. One singer sports a head band and the other has a cast on his left arm.
