Saturday Night Social: Remember To Cop Them JNCO Jeans 

It's the first trend I remember. I showed up to school one day and all of the sudden all the skater boys were wearing the widest, most cumbersome jeans my eyes had ever seen (shouts to out Ian M. and Noah Souder-Russo). An aversion to risk, I didn't want to ride around on a skateboard, but a sucker for fashion I sure… » 2/21/15 6:05pm 2/21/15 6:05pm

VHS Tutorials Definitely Made Dating in the 90s Way More Dangerous

Melissa McCarthy wore heels during her Saturday Night Live monologue, and was devastatingly charming about it. She should be in all the movies, not just the second-rate Jason Bateman comedies that studios slap together to remind us that overweight people are insidious identity thieves waiting to leech off of the… » 4/07/13 12:00pm 4/07/13 12:00pm

In 1993 Mila Kunis Was Stuck on Lisa Frank

This commercial was taped circa 1993, although 9-year-old Mila Kunis's enthusiasm is reminiscent of an earlier, more coked-up era: the Eighties. Mila will never forget the day she got stuck on Lisa Frank, you guys. A simpler time, before Jackie met Kelso. Awesome! Bee tee dubs, Lisa Frank is back, so all of your… » 10/19/12 11:50am 10/19/12 11:50am

Watch Young Tom Hardy Win a Modeling Contest Despite His Headband and…

Tom Hardy was super-casual about winning this modelling contest in 1998, which somehow makes it seem like headbands for dudes are really going to happen, especially if they imbue their wearers with Tom Hardy's sense of serene self-confidence. Who knew that this witty young man and his downy mustache would one day… » 8/21/12 11:15pm 8/21/12 11:15pm

RuPaul's 1993 Christmas Spectacular Is Your New Favorite Holiday Special

RuPaul's Christmas Ball was shot for VH1 in 1993, but now that I've discovered it (thanks, Eliot!), I'm pretty sure it's more entertaining than any Christmas special, ever. Not only does it feature RuPaul herself, but other insanely fierce celebrities of the time: Elton John, Taylor Dane, Boy George, Laura… » 12/12/11 6:40pm 12/12/11 6:40pm

All The Bike Safety Tips A Kid Could Need, In Convenient Rap Form

What we have here is a silly '90s rap about bike safety. The tips are fairly obvious — "ride straight in a line," "don't swerve in front of cars," and "don't ride on handlebars!" And what's the most important rule of all? "Wear your helmet every single time you ride, strap it on, kids, wear your helmet with pride!"… » 10/07/11 4:15pm 10/07/11 4:15pm

Anne Hathaway, 14, Weeps In Better Homes And Gardens Commercial

Before she was a goofy nerd-turned-princess, Catwoman, or in The Devil Wears Prada, Anne Hathaway was just a girl playing a girl in a commercial, who happened to be in love with her neighbor. The boy reassured her that even though they were selling their house, it would "take time" and that they'd have "the whole… » 8/19/11 5:10pm 8/19/11 5:10pm

Remember When Celebrities First Started Using The Internet?

Behold: Kurt Loder's investigative report for MTV News from 1995, in which he asks the big-name celebs of the day if they've started to use this crazy new thing called the World Wide Web. Sandra Bullock, Dave Matthews, Coolio, and The Smashing Pumpkin's Billy Corgan all seemed pretty cool with the existence of the… » 7/29/11 1:50pm 7/29/11 1:50pm
