Oh, Green Day. Once upon a time, years before the Berkeley band ventured into Broadway musicals and any endorsement deal that came along, they were the model for every 90s slacker, from punks to alterna-rockers. And of all their videos from that era, “When I Come Around” is the most slackerist. Absolutely nothing happens in the video. They just sort of amble around together aimlessly while a bunch of creepy people look out their windows. Oh and a couple makes out on a car. But somehow, through the nothing, Green Day taught me and a ton of other 90s kids a few things about style. And then eventually, they started looking like, as I affectionately call them, the Punk Rock Golden Girls.
CASUALLY PULLING A PAYPHONE OFF THE HOOK IS LITERALLY THE COOLEST THING A HUMAN CAN DO Because of this video, I will to this day still pull a payphone off the hook if I pass one. Unfortunately, you almost never see payphones anymore, and if you do, there’s usually some homeless dude using it to have a pretty heated discussion with his imaginary lawyer. Pulling phones is a careful art though. You can’t just say, “Hey guys! I’m gonna go pull that payphone off the hook. Watch how hilarious! Everybody watch!” No. You’ve gotta be all casual. When you’re walking past the phone, pull it off and keep walking. Don’t look back, don’t check anybody’s reaction, and for damn sure don’t laugh. If someone asks about it, you should be like, “Oh, did I pull the phone off the hook? I didn’t notice.” *shrug shoulders, put hands back in pockets*
