Kevin Bacon Launches 80’s Awareness Campaign To Combat Millennial Ignorance [Video]


kevin bacon 80s

Awareness of the 80’s has seen a sharp decline in recent years, thanks to everyone’s favorite love-to-hate-’em demographic, the Millennials.

In their malaise, these disillusioned young adults have turned a blind eye to the difficulties of the 1980’s, when anyone could be nuked off their skateboard by Russia at any given time. This is why actor Kevin Bacon, a veritable 80’s icon, sat down for Mashable to educate twentysomethings about a decade when things were really really really difficult. It was a time when:

  • You had to use the white pages to look up a cute girl, and then call her on her home phone.
  • When Rubik’s Cube was everyone’s favorite “app.”
  • When parachute pants were the gold-standard in lounge comfort.

Check out Kevin Bacon’s 80’s Awareness video above, and let us know what you think in the comments.
