The 90s were the worst.
I don't know how you can look at the decade that followed it and say that.
Yeah, the 90's might have been full of shit, but Jesus, they beat the hell out of the oughts.
Whatever decade is currently in question is the worst.
Also, pop-culturally decades are about 3-5 years behind the calendar, often with a year or two of a buffer zone in between, while the marketing industry tries to figure out how to co-opt some new youth culture thing. For example, the stereotypes of 70s pop culture (disco, bell bottoms, stuff like that) were really only a thing from about '74 to '82. Most of the stereotypes we associate with 60s pop culture were big from about '66 to maybe '72.
I'd say the 80s ended around 2002 and 90s were about 1994-2003.
Grunge was pretty 80s, and the rise of bands like Nirvana and Alice In Chains (and the term "grunge" of course) mark the tail end of it. Just like the invention of the idea of "hippies" by Time magazine in 1967 really marks the beginning of the end of that phenomenon, which really happened between '62 and '66.
Oh. Should've read the YT description, or the tags first. This is pretty bad for Jamie Hewlett.
As for ads themselves, they will always be ads. I did see a legitimately brilliant ad for Geico recently that's like a fake "you can skip this ad in 5..4.." and everyone at the dinner table stage-freezes and a dog jumps up on the table and starts eating all the food and knocking shit over while they're waiting for the ad to be over. Or, for context:
I dunno.. still makes me laugh.
As for Grunge, yeah. It bled into "alternative." I was a little young for the scene but a former co-worker gave me a copy of the Seattle Rocket (which became The Stranger) from I think 1988 that he found cleaning out his room, and the term was used the way "Metal" and "Punk" is used, and it was all devoted to bands like Mudhoney and The Melvins, and a few bands to look out for like Nirvana. And then it just blew up. But for marketing purposes, "Grunge" was long hair and flannel and not the music itself. It happened so quickly that the O.Gs (Original Grungers)? dropped the moniker completely.

The youth of today demand that their cola be made by horny people.

This is a better Tank Girl movie than the actual Tank Girl movie.

It's like Aborcrombie, no ugly or poor people allowed!
Oh sure, they make a big show of rejecting the nerd but then they go into that R&D lab and it's FULL of nerds. These people are just putting up a front. No one at their nonstop cola orgy is actually cool at all!

Even the bottle was designed to look like sex.
Seriously, look up "The Pammy"

Sometimes my work gets mistaken for Jamie Hewlett's but right now, I'm really glad no-one mistakes Jamie Hewlett's work for mine
