So Old, It’s Cool In Pop Culture

 —  January 10, 2014 — Leave a comment

There always seems to be a cycle to “coolness.”  Something becomes a big hit, everyone gets into it…and then it is “over-played” or eventually loses it’s novelty and then becomes cheesy if you continue doing it.

Screen shot 2014-01-08 at 8.40.17 AMThink about how some of these things used to be the center of coolness:

  1. Planking
  2. Chubby Bunny
  3. Photo Bombs
  4. Furby Hungwy
  5. POGS
  6. Nerdery
  7. Or, how about the lazer background in school pictures..?

Well, guess which one of these is coming back into the center of Pop Culture….

YOUGeneration is a hit television show in the UK, and they have been doing Chubby Bunny contests (seeing who could eat the most marshmallows while still being able to say, “Chubby Bunny”) with some of the biggest young stars of today. They’ve done it with One Direction, Cher Lloyd, Kimberly Wyatt….on and on.

Maybe things that would be considered “cheesy youth group games” to us are, well, cool again?
