Apparently, 90's nostalgia is, like, a thing. Charli XCX keyed into this for her new song "1999," featuring Troye Sivan. In the song's music video, XCX uses the face-swapping technology deepfakes to insert herself into iconic 90's images, TV shows, and even video games. Her song quickly became a favorite amongst 90's kids!
The song is super catchy even if you don't get the 90's references.

At XCX's request, many fans began offering up their favorite moments:
It's not every day a music video travels to the sim-o-verse!
Fans couldn't get enough of the new video.
Though it seems Sivan may not have written this song based 100% on her memories.
Either way, her recreations of classic 90's images was impeccable.
Many thanks to Charlie XCX for creating this new thing called "nostalgia!" I'm sure it won't become too much of a fad.
