People Tweet Childhood Memories With #YouAreOfficiallyOldIf & It’s A Nostalgic Trip!

For any 20-something, playing with tazos, watching ‘Small Wonder’, buying video casettes or helping Mario save his princess is part of the distant past. Those simple pleasures have been replaced with apps, streaming platforms and VR. But it doesn’t take long for nostalgia to strike and the reminiscing of a cherished childhood to be triggered.

Sometimes, all that is required is listening to an old Bollywood song or even the iconic theme of Doordarshan! Any rumour, show or image opens the floodgates and takes us back to the 90s. And the realisation that we’re OLD hits us like a ton of bricks.

If you too are of the 90s generation, you’ve got to see this new Twitter thread with the hashtag #YouAreOfficiallyOldIf. It has all the staples of that era right from Scooby Dooby Doo, The Flinstones, Nataraj pencils, rotary dial-up telephones and marbles!

People also poked fun at themselves (and their old age) with this trending hashtag. The jokes and memes about weak bones and back aches were aplenty on Twitter.

Didn’t scrolling through this thread make you want to look for episodes of ‘I Dream of Jeannie’ or ‘The Jetsons’ online? Tell us which one of these is your favourite childhood memory.
