One of the great rationalizations in movies or television is to justify certain types of behavior by saying “It’s the (pick your decade)”.
As if you are not responsible for your actions simply because you exist in a particular time frame where social and ethical moires have changed.
And I love it.
I once tried to explain to my mother, when she caught me smoking on the roof of our house, “That it’s the 90s, everyone smokes”.
Needless to say, I was grounded for about a month and quit smoking (but I did happen to start ingesting OTC diet pills with Jolt Cola for a sweet high which was so definitely the 90s).
And the following video demonstrates all that is so 90s through various movies scenes where people yell “It’s the 90s” over and over again with big giant 90s hair.
God I miss the 90s.
