The ’90s Nostalgia Is ‘Unbelievable’ In Hanson’s Owl City Cameo

By | June 30, 2015


Who better to help you wax nostalgic about growing up in the ’90s with Fly Girl hair and a Delia’s catalog within arms reach at all times than Hanson — the blonde brothers boy band trio that had you Mmmbopping to “Where’s the Love” on your portable CD player on repeat?

Answer: No one. Because Hanson is/was/always will be the best.

Which is great news because Isaac, Taylor and Zac have done just that with their ultra throwback-ish cameo in Owl City’s “Unbelievable.” The vid features a nod to pretty much the entirety of our youth by way of a cartoon VHS tape and over two dozen lyrical pop culture references that have us clinging to our Dream Phones and wishing Urkel was still on prime time.

As they say, “it ruled in so many ways.”

Here are all 27 (!!) ’90s mentions from the song, just so you can feel extra sappy-happy about yesteryear.
