*NSYNC’s Joey Fatone will open a hot dog and Italian ice cart in a Florida shopping mall.
The ’90s boybander announced that he will open Fat One’s (get it?!) hot dog cart in the Florida Mall in Orlando. The menu will include specialty hot dog options like the Gone Hollywood and the Boybander—five mini hot dogs symbolizing the five members of his former band, according to the Orlando Business Journal. The opening is set for August 2016. There’s no word on whether or not he’ll sell a beverage called “Dirty Pop”. But he should. He really should.

So how many gallons of soda did it take to fill an entire pool? 1,500 and counting. Watch the video here.
