A scene from the “Unbelievable” video.
Owl City, an honorary member of Peter Pan’s Lost Boys, loves the ’90s. He also loves savvy marketing, which is why Minnesota’s biggest contemporary pop star ostensibly recorded a BuzzFeed list put to song, “Unbelievable,” with “MMMbop” masterminds Hanson. An animated video for the bubbly, wistful, half-rapped ode to Clinton-era pop culture was issued last week. The synth-y nostalgia overdose is accompanied by a “Good Time”- alluding whistle hook and oh-so-many references. Among them:
The Lion King
Fresh Prince and Jazzy Jeff
Saved by the Bell
… it really just keeps on going. And based off the 576,000-ish views the video has earned, there appears to be high demand for the musical listicle. Satiate yourself below.
