Remember the '70s and '80s? Of course you don't.

They were fast and strange times, whether you were alive for them or not. Being born at the tail-end of the '80s, I'm too young to remember much, but I'll say this: I learned all I'll ever need to know about this era the first time I asked my father about his glory days.

He didn't go into detail—just stared into the distance and said something about it being a time when "men wore makeup" and "sheep were afraid." I still don't know what that means, but based on those words and these sports commercials I recently dug up, I know one thing:

Things got weird.
