Reason #34958409 Why You Should Burn Home Videos Pre-Dating '95
Director Nir Bashan of Reactor Films/LA just sent us its latest work for AquaNet, one of those unfortunate brands whose persona is condemned to retro.
Leveraging that, Reactor -- in tandem with Buck Productions -- busts out with what looks like early-'90s footage of two kids with Highly Unfortunate Hair, lip-syncing to Vanilla Ice's Ice Ice Baby.
Where are these guys now? It doesn't seem right to laugh at a contemporary's childhood trauma without the victims sitting here, in the flesh, fighting to maintain composure.
Tagline reads "AquaNet: Keeping it stiff since 1991." We're treated to one last finger-pose before the video cuts. Fucking rad.
*We're allowed to say this because we actually have one of these videos. There used to be a company called Be a Star! that would slut up your kids and force them to gyrate to pop songs in front of a camera. Our mom plays our three-year-old rendition of Cyndi Lauper's Girls Just Wanna Have Fun every year on our birthday -- complete with lace gloves and awesome green-screen effects.
