Charli XCX and Troye Sivan Pay Perfect Homage To 90s Nostalgia In New Music Video '1999'

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.

Fans couldn't get enough of the new video.

the only comments i have about the 1999 mv are: 1) i’m gay for charli xcx 2) troye sivan as a straight dude w facial hair is one of the most disturbing sights i’ve ever seen and i hope i never have to experience that again twitter.com

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.
