These glimpses of old-school gems are a nice reminder of how we had it before social media took over.
We all tell ourselves the "I'm still in the prime of my life" lie, don't we? The Gen Z-er pointing out that the official number of years I've been alive doesn't exactly scream "young" doesn't know what he's talking about. Why else would I know how to do the "Renegade"? I'm one of the cool kids, bruh. Alright, real talk, the age lie does work pretty well against instances of existential crisis and holds up against pretty much anything. Except... a walk down nostalgia lane when you come across a relic from the old times like this:
I’m this old. If you don’t remember this, you to young, fam. 😅 https://t.co/Mw4XE3E4dW— Dir.Coke 📽🎞 (@CokeDir) April 12, 2020
So, since someone started an "I'm this old" trend on social media, I've been feeling like a relic that might crumble if you so much as breath in my direction. However, I must admit, these glimpses of old-school gems are a nice reminder of how we had it before social media took over. So let's say "f*ck age" and sprint down this memory lane that must seem rather odd to the younger generations.
