Anybody got any short fads that were mocked when the fad was over?
I have a couple of fads.
1.The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers(AKA The Original Power Rangers, 1994/1995) This was a huge fad. Kids loved this show and couldn't WAIT to get home and watch this show. By the next year, these same kids were insulting other kids who still watched PR. They would say stuff like, "You're such a baby! You watch PR!"(Notice, it wasnt you STILL watch PR, it was you watch PR.)
2.The Macarena- This dance took EVERYBODY by storm! Even the Prez was doing it(Bill Clinton) This was a hit done by Los Del Rio then remade by the Bayside Boys. Everybody was doing this dance. A short time later, people got sick of the Macarena and The Macarena was put on virtually every "Worst Songs" list in the US(This is a song that for a short time was incredibly loved. Oh wait. That was the DANCE that was really loved, not the actual song). I even saw a tape of "How To Do The Macarena" in a thrift store for $1.00! (I didn't buy it)
