For the better part of Wednesday, #ExplainThe90sIn4Words was the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter. I chuckled to myself as I thought about everyone’s favorite bad-ass band (Uncle Jesse and the Rippers, obvi), blowing into Super NES cartridges, my mom killing my Tamagotchi while I was in school, and a bleach-blonde JT, among other things.
People went crazy with the hashtag, and as of 6:45 this morning, it’s still the top trending. Even brands got in on the action. JCPenney creatively tweeted “Did I do that?” with a link directing to an ecommerce page where one could buy the Steve Urkel shirt below.
