During these trying times — in the midst of war, economic crises, and Rebecca Black — sometimes we need ways to appreciate what we have. So, if you’re having a bad day, be sure to check out this video that remembers the decade in which aliens invaded Earth, Tamagotchis were substitutes for human interaction, and the Spin Doctors were allowed to be popular. Aw, who am I kidding? The ’90s were awesome! Click the jump to check out this insanely nostalgic video, which remembers the days when Britney Spears was vivacious, ring pops dripped all over your fingers, and G.I. Joe wasn’t associated with a drunken night on Ebaumsworld. Also: Creepy, Creepy, Crawlers!

I will never get tired of these. And why have they yet to include Orbitz?
