Tumblr User Shares Sightings of Their City's "80s Guy"

If you live in a big enough city, you likely have someone you refer to as "mowhawk guy" or "piano lady" or "roller blading guy." In this case we have a guy straight out of a Def Leppard video. If anything, this guy inspires feelings of nostalgia for the 80s and 90s. Every city has its own cast of local eccentrics who dance to the beat of their own drum. In this guy's case, that drum playing hair metal.

Funny tumblr post about eccentric 80s guy sightings.

Disappointing Purchases People Made After Being Misled By Ads

We've all been woo'd by a good commercial at some point in our lives. Especially when you're a kid, Nerf really makes it look like having a sweet blaster will make you the coolest kid on the street. We've all gone crazy at some point for those ads for laser tag games and frozen drink makers, and many of us never learn and keep making stupid purchases far into our adult years. That said, this isn't always our fault, sometimes products are straight up misleading and manipulative.

Nostalgia Fuel from The 90s

There are two things that make us wish we could go back in time, straight to the 90s. The first one is the general annoyance of adult life and all the complete BS you have to deal with in the working world. The second is sweet, sweet 90s nostalgia. And an added third I guess would be that we could bet on Super Bowl winners.

Huge Trends That Everyone Just Kinda Forgot About

Man, remember when bacon was a huge thing? There were bacon boardgames, bacon wallets, and bacon flavored soda. It seemed fine at the time, but looking back really makes you question your judgement.

Seth Rogen Reminds Twitter That McDonald's Used To Serve Pizza

Seth Rogen shook Twitter up a bit when he sent out a tweet reminding the world that McDonald's did in fact used to serve pizza. It's a bit of a trip thinking about what that could've tasted like. Did the crust resemble the renowned flavor of their french fries? 

Or maybe the pizza itself was more on par with that of a Domino's. We'll never know, unless all these inspired and hangry Twitter users motivate McDonald's to consider bringing it back. Maybe Seth Rogen started a movement.

43 Interesting and Sometimes Outrageous Vintage Food Advertisements

Some of these are kind of cool. Some of these are a little shocking. Some of them are gross. Some of them are straight-up weird. Post World War II America was a place of seemingly endless prosperity. How this attitude resulted with ads for putting Mayo on pears and putting chow mein in a can, we'll never know. The snapshot of the past is interesting enough, especially with some of the stuff here that never caught on.
