There is no one better to explain the ‘80s than one of the best ’80s kids back in the day. Kevin Bacon was actually a teenager in the ‘70s believe it or not. We fondly remember him (at the age of 26 at the time!) in 1984’s “Footloose” as the carefree teenager who just wants to dance. The 55-year-old actor appears in a spoof to spread awareness of the ’80s.

He says in the beginning of the hilarious clip:

“Awareness of ’80s culture and technology has been in a significant decline,”

“Especially among a certain demographic – I’m talking to you, Millennials.”

“All you guys born after 1985 have no idea how hard life was,”

He says about the dating game back in the day:

“I went to the White Pages – Google it – and called her house,”

“And let me tell you, when she turns down your invitation to Sbarro’s, you can’t just swipe away the hurt.”

He even takes a crack at the Cold War and “nukes”:

“You think Russia’s a threat now? Let me tell you about a little thing called the Cold War,”

“They had nukes pointed at us for 20 years. You couldn’t even skateboard to a Blockbuster without getting nuked.”

Bacon gets upset at the end of the clip and storms out because the cameraman stops focusing on him and his long-winded story. As he leaves the building he walks in to some people busy on their Smartphones. He passed the following comment for no apparent reason:

“You people would never know the comfort of parachute pants,”
