and that lesson would be that if minneapolis were rocking anything, it would be the brandon walsh unbuttoned shirt look from 90210.*
and that got me jonesing the world of 90210, so i checked to see if youtube had anything.
you bet your ass they do.
here's season 1 opening credits for "beverly hills 90210" and the classic "turn to the camera" credits for season 5.
one word comes to mind: douchebags.
* - would you believe, with all the crap that's on the internet, that i couldn't find a shot of brandon walsh with that style, where he wore a button down shirt with the top three buttons undone over a unicolor undershirt? it's as if jason priestley went online and personally erased any evidence of it, just so i wouldn't have a good payoff for my joke. yes, ladies and gentlemen, i just spent thirty minutes of my life that i'm never gonna get back looking for just one image to make that joke work - and yet, that one was the best i could do.
all this for a joke, and it's only 65% funny. don't say i don't work my ass off for you.
