The Iron Man franchise is one of the biggest movie franchises out there today. Robert Downey Jr., crazy special effects and great plots make for an unbeatable combination that kills at the box office. 8-bit cinema (who has also done a version of The Great Gatsby) has proven with their newest video that they can drop the effects and the badass movie star, cut the plot down to one minute and still tell an amazing story.
The throwback to classic video games is genius and will make you wish you still had your Super Nintendo. And if you’re anything like me and have the attention span of a goldfish and can’t sit through an entire movie, this version will be right up your alley.
Well here’s a random piece of information.
Did you know that Danielle Fischel (aka Topanga Lawrence) took former ‘N Sync-er Lance Bass to prom?
Well, she did. And the photo evidence here is ’90s gold!
It was back in the year of 1999 when Fischel was a senior in high school and was dating Bass. But because he was in one of the biggest boy bands at the time, he had to decline her first request to prom because he was on tour.
But then a week later, Fischel says Bass sent her “three dozen roses in the mail with a card that said, ‘Plans have changed, I’ll be in town. Can I take you to prom? Check yes or no.’ And there were two little boxes!”
Obviously taking the opportunity, Fischel checked ‘Yes’ and the two spent the night dancing away. I imagine that it felt just like a fairy tale.
Now of course, we’re familiar that Bass said he was gay in 2006, but he still wins PROM KING IN MY EYES!!
Here’s one from the archives: Dance instructor Dena Rizzo’s hilarious blend of old school dance breaks mixed with her attempt at explaining what hip hop is, makes me want to throw on a pair of Adidas button up snaps and grab a boombox.
Rizzo lists some of the first rules of hip hop: turn your feet out, be relaxed and your hands are always “AHH” like this:
Then her students showed off some of the dance moves they learned:
According to Rizzo, hip hop isn’t just a dance style — it’s the way you dress too. She wears a blue, long sleeved jersey and striped black pants. Later, she throws on an oversized jacket and says: “I went to this club right, and they had no baggy pants and no sneakers. That was wild, I didn’t know what to think about that.”
“People ask me all the time what happens when hip hop goes out? Hip hop is an attitude. It’s right here,” she said pointing to her heart. “It’s how you feel, it’s a style.”
