The ’90s: The Last Great Decade? Exclusive Clip: We Hope This Craze Doesn’t Make a Comeback (VIDEO)
If you lived through the ‘90s, then chances are, nothing sends a chill down your spine like hearing the word “macarena.” Yes, as in, “The Macarena” — the dance craze that swept the nation and infected the population in the mid-’90s. People are still recovering from this catchy contagion.
But how did a song recording by an aging Spanish duo — no offense, Los del Río — turn into a worldwide phenomenon? Wetpaint has an exclusive clip from National Geographic Channel’s three-night miniseries event, The ‘90s: The Last Great Decade?, that explains how the virus spread. It turns out that when you take a catchy Spanish song, add English lyrics, and hot dancing women, you have a total hit on your hands! Oh, ‘90s.
Narrated by ‘90s hunk Rob Lowe, The ‘90s: The Last Great Decade? will revisit everything from O.J.’s infamous Ford Bronco chase, to President Bill Clinton’s two terms in office, and even pay a visit to our favorite Friends. And who could forget all of the fashion trends that made the ‘90s so great? We’re looking at you, jelly sandals.
