Back to the Analog Age: How to Rock it Like it’s 1986. {Video} ~ Judith Andersson

Via Judith Andersson on Sep 13, 2013


The 1980s were more than just the Cold War, they were also the time of poodle mullets, aerobics and cassette tapes.

1986 was the year when Halley’s Comet made an appearance, Top Gun was the no.1 movie and smoking on public transport where banned and the scandal beauty Lindsay Lohan was born. 

It was also the year Canadian father of two Blair McMillan saw the light of day. 27 years later he decided to return to the golden age of fluff in an attempt to get his kids away from their Ipads and connect with the real world. The family of four swapped Facebook and other disconnecting “modernities” for board games, family nights and cassettes tapes, and best of all, they even rock the looks of the 80s!
