One Photo Sums Up The 90s?
Both Buzzfeed and WTFOODGE believe that the photo above pretty much sums up all of the 90s. And, when I first looked at it, I was inclined to believe them. It’s got Will Smith playing baseball on the Nintendo Entertainment System in ridiculous stretch/sweatpants, with a Mariah Carey CD resting near his unlaced shoes. And that does sum up the beginning of the decade rather nicely. And I suppose his backwards baseball cap, though not red, does pay homage to the suckitude of the late 90s (I’m thinking of Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst here). But what about the middle of the decade? I mean, where’s the fucking flannel, man?
Hey, Fivers, can you find me better photos to represent that decade during which so many of us came of age? Throw me some links in the comments!
