Watching This Short Animation Is Like Taking a Trip to the Mall in the 80s

Malls were great in the 80's. Or so I hear. Big clothes. Even bigger hair. Comic book stores, record shops, arcades, and movie theaters. And a bunch of bored folks goofing around indoors because there was nothing else to do. Ah, what a carefree life those youths lived. This short animation, Mall 84 by Gervais Merryweather, gives us a glimpse of what life was like back then. I’d go back.

Nice animation, but no thanks on going back.

I was that kid who got pushed away from the arcade machine by the bigger kid, only there wasn’t any guard to watch my back.

The bros of this era were the same as back then, only the ones in the 80's had mullets with rat tails; which in my opinion just made them that much more creepy.

I thankfully left the 1980's WAY behind me.
