Hello, online millennials! Do you recall the ’90s? Bill Clinton was our sax-playing emperor of America (or, as we called it back then, “president”). For fun, instead of shit-posting or hate-scrolling through Twitter we squeezed yogurt into our mouths while skateboarding with cartoon dogs. An app was a thing that came with ranch dressing, the Antarctic ice shelf was still intact, and MTV was still cool. It was a merry decade, where nothing was wrong and everything was fun.
Or at least it would seem that way while watching this surprisingly intricate supercut of ’90s dance scenes, which splices together beloved films like Clerks, Gremlins, The Fifth Element, Pulp Fiction, Jerry Maguire, and, um, Cool As Ice at their most ecstatic moments. While the song choice is unfortunate—Bloodhound Gang’s “The Bad Touch,” a.k.a “We ain’t nothin’ but mammals”—the editing is inspired, cramming 83 different movies into just a few minutes. Here, bathe in the sweet bliss of the past:
Did that make you feel better? Put it on repeat! Watch it and know the joy that once radiated off of celluloid, before even your goddamn high-definition television was spying on you.
