THREE MINUTES ? Way too long for a millenial.

i was born in 1981, which my wife insists makes me a millennial, but i can’t relate to any of this. seems more like a social class than a generation.

Millennials are all beautiful.

Hey millennials, wearing a VR headset outside is just wrong.


#5

I don’t know what they’ll try to sell me but I wholeheartedly believe any company using this understands my identity at a deep and profound level and am willing to support them by exchanging my avocado toast for goods and services

Here’s an interesting take on Millennial ads.


#7

pfft. I was into this ad way before anyone else.


#8

I enjoyed this ad…but only ironically.


#9

Mahk is fantastic. I love the Malibu commercial.


#10

That’s right on the edge of GenX and millennial, IMO. I was born in '66 which is very early X.


#11

I was born in 1980. We now get the distinct honor of being a “micro-generation” labeled “Xennials” by people who care about such things. So congrats on not being a Gen-Xer. From Mashable.

What’s a Millennial? Asked the old codger…


#13

i did grow up thinking i was a young gen-xer, but that was before millennial was a thing. millennialism, however…


#14

Huh, interesting. I remember when they were called ‘Generation Y’.

My favorite term used to be:

But then I read recently that in Hungary, they use the term “Ducktales generation”. That’s savory, that is.

As a kid born in the 80’s and in middle school when ‘VR’ was a buzzword? Total agreement. Dude you look like some sort of proto gargyle from snow crash.

I think you’re whatever generation that you most relate to. As a late 1980’s college student working shitty temp jobs and graduating into a recession I felt like the poster boy for a Douglas Coupland novel.

Is there a Generic Baby Boomer ad - you know, one that isn’t specifically selling Harley Davidsons?

Are we using SI units or Imperial?
