Y’all remember how excited I was when Charli XCX and Troye Sivan announced and then released their new single together, 1999? Well that excitement pales in comparison to the excitement I have for the music video! It is nostalgia avenue, a walk down memory lane, the greatest freakin’ video of 2018, maybe all time? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
The video includes references to the Spice Girls, Steve Jobs, Skechers, N’Sync, Eminem, Nokia cellphones, American Beauty, The Sims, G-Baby watches, Titanic, The Matrix, Justin Timeberlake, The Blair Witch Project and Hanes! If that’s not a comprehensive list of things that make you say “OMG, I remember that, I miss those/that,” you are lying to yourself or #ShesTooYoungForYou.
If you don’t believe me watch the music video for yourself and you will definitely agree.
