Born after 1985? Because if so, Kevin Bacon has a message for you — you’re annoying. Find out what Kevin has to say about the days before smartphones (the horror) below!
Kevin Bacon may be hotter than ever right now thanks to The Following, but he’s still majorly pissed — mostly because he finds everyone born after 1985 to be incredibly uninformed and annoying. Thankfully, Kevin’s here to teach us all about Rubik’s Cubes, the Cold War, and pre-smartphone dating in his “’80s Awareness” video!
Kevin Bacon Teaches ’80s To Millennials In Hilarious Video — Watch
Two-time Saturn Award-nominee Kevin Bacon is seriously annoyed with modern technology.
“If I was too shy to ask a girl out, there was no OKTwinder,” he laments.” I went to the White Pages — Google it. And called her house. And then you had to make small talk with her mom for like, 20 minutes before she even came to the phone. And let me tell you, when she turns down your invitation to Sbarro’s, you can’t just swipe away the hurt.”
Okay, so that does sound pretty horrible. Even worse is the Cold War, but Kevin’s wrong about that one — we Millennials learned all about it on The Americans!
“You couldn’t even skateboard to a Blockbuster without getting nuked,” he says. “My friend Tommy went out to rent a copy of Gremlins and never came back. You know why? Nuked. At least that’s what my parents told me.”
Sing it, Kevin. Check out Kevin’s thoughts on the ’80s, and let us know your thoughts in the comments!
