#TBT: Did Kris Kross Make You Jump Jump?

 Quotes: Leandra Medine ManReppler

Best Tweet of the Week: Leandra Medine, the Man Repeller

By now if you have been keeping up with our blog, you know we love Buzzfeed. They are consistently posting the best (and the worst) of the internet and news. Well, today I have discovered their Buzzfeed REWIND. (Don't judge, I've been busy!) So being in typical Throwback Thursday fashion, we are sharing their latest and possibly most hilarious Oprah post. Remember when all your favorite 90s musicians shared a stage together? Well, if you missed it then, definitely enjoy it now. You'll be treated to TLC, Marky Mark and Kris Kross. The ridiculousness that we all thought was the coolest. My favorite part about this whole clip from Oprah are the numerous and priceless looks each guest (and Oprah herself) are suppling us with. Thank god for those because they make perfect animated gifs. Twitter followers be warned. You will be seeing more of these in the future.

Regardless, there was a time when Kris Kross made me jump and wear my clothes backwards. Seriously, did I just own up to that? And can we talk about their commercial with Sprite? Ok, enough with the rambling. How did you survive the 90s? What was your favorite moment of this clip and if you could sum up that decade best, let me know in the comment below. I'll leave you with my favorite from Leandra Medine, the Man Repeller: You know what the 90s really fucked up is pants. Cheers to #TBT!
