Ah, the ’90s. Back when the house was full, the turtles were ninja, and your Pepsi was Crystal. It was a simpler, radder time… In honor of the return of Crystal Pepsi (yes, you read that right) and the Crystal Pepsi Summer of ’92 party happening in NYC on August 9th, we’ve rounded up the most ’90s pop culture moments and artifacts, ever. Get ready for a trip down memory lane, dude. And RSVP now to join us for the raddest party this side of the ’90s.

Oregon Trail

We’re gonna go ahead and say it: Fording the river is a scam! We always went for a solid caulk job. But then, we also always died of dysentery shortly after passing Fort Laramie. Luckily, at the Crystal Pepsi Summer of ’92 you’ll be able to play The Crystal Pepsi Trail, which is like an Inception-ed Oregon Trail, all about the ’90s:

Slap Bracelets

These were the coolest accessories outside of your sister’s jewelry box.

Crimped Hair

It seemed like a good idea at the time, OK? It’s like we didn’t learn from perms, or something… (Try to) bring back the trend at the Summer of ’92‘s Cut & Style Salon!

The Bartman

Bart Simpson was ’90s. Michael Jackson was ’90s. When you put them together — in a cartoon rap song — you get something so ’90s our heads might explode.

Laser Photo Backdrops

It just wouldn’t be school picture day without some well-placed lasers, right? Recreate the glamour at Crystal Pepsi’s Summer of ’92 photo booth. BYO mullet.

Whatever!/As if!

Clueless was Jane Austen’s Emma by way of 1995 and Rodeo Drive. And besides some serious fashion, the film gifted us with two enduring additions to our lexicon.

Clinton Sax

Hail to the chief.

“Stay”

Raise your hand if you memorized all the words to sing to your girlfriends on the playground at recess. Good. You can sing along at the Summer of ’92 show.

Ghostwriter

The show that launched a thousand writers and word nerds. Thank you, PBS!

Rollerblading

Ripped, rad, and sexy?! Dude!

“My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It)”

Before there was Beyonce, before there was even Destiny’s Child, there was En Vogue. Respect. Here’s hoping they play “My Lovin'” at the Summer of ’92 show!

Pokémon

JUST KIDDING this is totally a 2016 thing.
