I’m having an identity crisis.
I thought I was, as Icona Pop perfectly puts it in “I Love It,” a “90s bitch.” I was born in the 1990s. Doesn’t that make me a 90s bitch?
I was convinced that yes, it does — until I watched this video of a dance-off in a high school back in the 1990s.
Besides the fact that the teens dancing in it are now in their 40s, I can safely say I never experienced this culture. And I am damn happy I didn’t.
Their old-school moves, which were normal then, would look completely ridiculous at any dance or club now. Whereas they were actually dancing, us Millennials basically just dry hump to an electronic beat.
Aside from the huge difference in what constitutes dope moves on the dance floor, let’s take a second to appreciate the fashion and hairstyles in this 20-minute gem. It’s like a “Fresh Prince” parody, except it’s real.
Watch the cringeworthy clip up top, and thank your lucky stars you’re a Millennial.
