Do you remember the "extreme" craze Jan. 12th, 2013 @ 02:21 PM Reply

I remember in the 1990s, there are commercials showing skaterkids placing emphasis on "extreme" and all that crap to make the products look cool. I know I actually like some of those products such as "Surge" (remember the caffeine content has nothing to do with it's cancellation, it was the poor sales).

In other words for me, it was the best of times and no so good.

Don't get me started to Gogurt, seriously if you eat with a spoon, you're uncool? Okay...I know the package is much more convienent but that's kind of messed up don't you think?

I know opinion differs so I just want to know your thoughts on this.

That Pepsi commercial with Cuba Gooding Jr, was funny though, too bad he start making questionable choices of films to star in ever since he won that Oscar.

I can appreciate the 90's even though I wasn't there for very long.

To make it worse was that often times in the commercial they'll always have a grunge rocking shouting "IT'S EXTREME!!!"

I know there are people still high on nostalgia when it comes to the 1990s, but remembering this kept me from reaching that point since there are still the bad that occurs as well, among other things.

The only people that harp on about the nineties being great were kids who were too young to truly understand just how shit they were.
I was born in 1987 so it's safe to say my whole childhood was "nineties"-oriented.

Same with me.

There are some of the aspects of that time where I would go, "I can't believe I used to like this crap!"

Some of those kids who have nothing but great memories might have been born in the mid to later part of the decade where they would barely experience the part of the decade and acted like they have been there throughout the time.

Yeah, I was there when the Zelda rap commercial aired.

Can you also find the original rap commercial for Sonic the Hedgehog?

My Childhood was in the 2000's, and I don't really remember anything before 2003.

That was 2000s, but if that wasn't what you meant then I'm guessing the scene where the two characters encountered the skater kids?

Yeah, it was great when they got framed by Kumar for possession of pot, it was funny.

Good for you, you're probably one of the people who actually loves these kinds of things. The band Nirvana helped with the craze since grunge and extreme tends to mix.

I think that occured inthe late 90s-early 2000s when I was a kid. Cant say I bought into any of those things. I was really into skateboards though. The point was you always had to be active. Always on the move. So it would be uncool to be sitting on your ass slopping food in your mouth. We could use a bit of that nowadays. When emo came in kids starting getting lazy and whiney again. Now theyre all up dancing around, running around with their phones being douches so maybe that will help.

No they were all about being lazy ass potheads.

Actually it happened earlier than that where they tends to market products by making it sounds so extreme with grunge playing in the background.

Do you remember Nerf and Supersoaker? The latter was fun for a while but it gets kind of lame sometime afterward. The thing is that for much of the time the commercials and even shows would get caught up in these kinds of stuff.

Oh god I remember that. It was extreme........ly retarded.
Though I liked a lot of other things that had to do with the 90s since that was a good sized amount of my childhood.

Same here, what I missed about the 1990s was mainly the Yankees baseball dynasty and Michael Jordan's playing career among other things (which includes a long list of stuff that happened in my personal life that I remember fondly). At the same time there are also aspects of the decade and things that happened in my personal life that I do not miss.

I was born in 1997, so I can only remember very little. I assume the 90's were awesome because of my brothers. Their childhood and teenage years were 90's oriented and early 2000's oriented. They listened to tons of old music that I was exposed to at a young age, not to mention the hit movies of the time like The Matrix, Billy Madison, and Austin Powers. The whole "extreme" thing brings back a lot of memories about a bunch of really grungie guys who liked skateboarding.

I think the latest I can remember to is 1999, and I do remember a few ads with the whole extreme bit going on.

That went on a ways into the 2000's. It was horrible in retrospect but I guess it worked because I owned moon shoes and sock'em boppers.

I remember it a little. It was definitely still around for a while after the 90's because I remember it and I was only 6 at the turn of the millennium.

I can relate with this mostly but I was born in 91. The 2000s fucking sucked.
