One thing that is common to all children born in the 90s in 2020 is that we all grew up in a relatively strange environment. The so-called development before the emergence of their toys, technology, food and furniture city of the post-90s generation allowed the post-90s generation’s wisdom to develop and enter the next absurd fashion. There are also some ordinary people who cannot understand the weird behaviors and things of the post-90s generation, and after writing, the children will do better in their next childhood.
Let’s face it: Budweiser was absolutely on fire when it came to advertising in the 90s. I still think about those three delightfully laconic frogs “Bud”, “Weis,” and “Er,” and even their less-popular frenemy the chameleons. Then in 1999, Anheuser-Busch rolled out the “Whassup?” ad, which took their advertising dominance to new levels. The commercial won a Clio, the Oscars of advertising, and was even inducted into the Clio hall of fame. And everyone saw this commercial.
You know they did because everyone started saying whassup constantly, always making it raspier, longer, and more unintelligible. I was a preteen at the time, and this meant that every person in my school said “whassup” every day—in the hallway, in the cafeteria, at recess. Then I would come home and my dad’s friends would be saying it. It was the type of cultural wildfire that forced news anchors to learn the word ‘memetic’—a decade before they learned the word ‘meme.’
