Now every day can be Throwback Thursday thanks to Charli XCX and Troye Sivan’s new video for their collab jam “1999”; a true time-warp to a simpler era, a period defined by newly-waterproof watches and warnings about Waterfalls (specifically, the chasing of them).

Charli and Troye manage to channel more ’99 imagery than imaginable, and in a pretty accurate manner too, with their nostalgia trip making pit stops everywhere from the Matrix to Marshall Mathers. But don’t take our word for it! Check out the comparisons above for the most radical retro replicas from the ‘1999’ video.
