Internet’s Cat Fetish Predicted In 1995 By Fifth Graders


Remember 1995? Clinton was on that White House tip, OJ Simpson was on trial, and these fifth graders from Helena, Montana were caught on camera dropping truth bombs about the internet. They predict how, by the time they’re in college, the internet will be their EVERYTHING (by my calculations, they were college-bound around 2003 so… right on, kids). They proceed to cutely explain all of the internet’s functionalities, like allowing you to visit Jupiter and more importantly, look up recipes for cupcakes made of cat food. Could they have predicted that this PSA would resurface — ON THE INTERNET, OF ALL PLACES — to haunt them, 17 years later? The jury’s still out.
