If you’re like me, every now and then you find yourself wondering how outdated the coolest things we have today are going to look in ten years. I remember 2002 pretty vividly. And I remember each of these commercials. At the time, they all seemed pretty awesome and I was sure that nothing could ever be better.
Oh, those were the days.
#5 : Chili’s Baby Back Ribs, starring *NSYNC
Only here because JT was and is still the man. The rest of those guys were just holding him down.
#4: McDonald’s Triple Thick Milkshakes
Back then, we thought Triple Thick Milkshakes were as bad as it could get for you. Then the Heart Attack Grill Showed up.
#3: KFC’s Popcorn Chicken, Starring Jason Alexander and Barry Bonds
Back when Barry Bonds could actually pitch a product. I bet I know what’s in those mystery meat nuggets.
#2: Honey Nut Cheerios Milk and Cereal Bars
At the time, this seemed like a really cool idea. Now that everything comes in bar form, however, it’s pretty much boring.
#1: Nestea’s Laundrette
Nothing says sex appeal like pulling a bra out from inside you and tossing it to a hot chick who gives you the eye. Somebody get me some Nestea, stat.
