The Instagram #80’s Throwback Challenge

I was nominated by a friend to do the Instagram #80’s Throwback Challenge. I wanted to do it but all the stuff from my childhood are either gone, or stored away somewhere in my parents’ home back in KL. I could obviously lift photos off the internet, but where’s the fun in that?

And then I remembered watching a YouTube flight safety video with lots of references to the good old, big-haired days of the 80’s. This video was actually released last year so it isn’t new, but it was too soon after MH370 when I first saw it, so I didn’t want to post it then.

So in lieu of five days of Instagram photos, here’s five and a half minutes of glorious 80’s references:

My favourite throwback in the video? Teddy Ruxpin! He was a pretty awesome story-telling bear. He’s stashed somewhere in one of my parents’ cupboards back home, and his story telling days are over. RIP, Teddy Ruxpin.

Oh, if you were a child of the 80’s, you’d definitely be able to relate to the bit at 4:46-4:51. I remember bruising many a pinkie winding up those darned tapes.

The good old days 🙂
