Daily Distraction: Let these OSU football players make you feel old as dirt
Feel your skin begin to wrinkle and then slowly to turn to ash when the players can't identify Austin Powers
At this point, 1990 is more than 30 years ago, so the members of the Ohio State football team, most of whom were probably born more than 10 years after Macaulay Culkin tormented the Wet Bandits in "Home Alone," could be forgiven for not having the best grasp on the pop culture from that era.
In a newly released video, which you can watch below, a number of the players struggle to identify Austin Powers (we're OK with this, mainly so we don't have to hear people quote from the film), a floppy disk (understandable) and a pager (sigh, really?).
There is, however, one '90s artifact that still resonates: "Martin," the sitcom starring comedian Martin Lawrence, which every player recognized instantly, save the one who mistakenly calls it "Marvin."
Anyway, allow these two-plus minutes to make you feel 107 years older, give or take 3 years.
