I hate to be the one to tell you, but all these things happened 20 short years ago! How many do you actually remember?
⇒ The original “X-Men” movie was released, cementing Hugh Jackman as a Hollywood A-lister.
⇒ The Nokia 3390 cellphone hit the market, and everyone HAD to have one.
⇒ Brad Pitt was named People’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive” for the second time.
⇒ The Sims video game had everyone creating fake families on their computers.
⇒ ‘NSync was the biggest boy band in the world, selling 9.9 million copies of their “No Strings Attached” album before the end of the year.
⇒ A sometimes-naked Richard Hatch won the first season of “Survivor”, the highest rated show of the year.
⇒ Maude Flanders, wife of Ned and neighbor to Homer and Marge, was killed off on “The Simpsons”.
⇒ Heinz introduced purple and green colored ketchup into their EZ Squirt line of “kid-friendly” nozzled bottles.
20 years ago is also the last time it was cool to write “Y2K”!
