A music video for the song “1999” by Charli XCX and Troye Sivan was recently released—and it’s giving us a major throwback to the late 90’s. The British songwriter and South African artist went all out in celebrating the era while showing off their acting skills. Name a cultural icon from the time and they’ve probably got it, from Spice Girls, Titanic, The Matrix, Skechers, and even The Sims are just a few that were recreated in entertaining fashion. And we ‘90s kids were not disappointed a bit.
