Merry Summer Solstice and National Indigenous Peoples Day!  Mmmmm summer, it is HERE.

This group of radical, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle lovin’ sk8er boyz were the coolest in school in 1990.  I particularly enjoy how in the top right corner of that picture, “husky” and “prep” are two of the jean fits.

AD COPY WRITER 1:  It’s a good ad, but let’s give them a little story. You know, so teens can relate.

GREG: Perfect Marv, but let’s make it the most unnatural dialogue anyone’s ever read.

MARV: You’re the man Greg!  Let’s take these power suits out for a liquid lunch and sit in the smoking section.

BOTH: Yey, 90s!
