Video of the Day: Michael Galinsky’s Scenes from a Mall, ca. 1990


Big, fried hair. T-shirts tucked into light, too-tight denim. Puffy windbreakers. Kids with mullets. Dudes in neon tank tops. Fanny packs. Acid-wash everything. If you remember what shopping malls were like back in 1990 — you know, the year before grunge introduced flannel and thrift-store garb into the mix — then this slideshow of photos taken that summer, by Rumur‘s Michael Galinsky is sure to bring back some wonderful/embarrassing memories. Watch it after the jump, and then click through for a gallery of our favorite shots.
