High School ‘Anime Club’ Video From 2004 Is a Time Capsule of Comedy Gold
The aughts are back, baby. Haven't you heard? Steve from Blue's Clueshas returned. Britney Spears is free. The Matrixis getting resurrected. And you know what? I'm here for it. 2021 kinda sucks, so why not indulge in some early 2000s nostalgia? While remakes and reboots are fun and all, how about diving into the real time capsules and classic gems waiting to be rediscovered on YouTube? For example, this student-made video from 2004 that features Centennial High School's anime club, long beforeanime was cool. The hilarious video starts out with a member of the club literally stealing some jock's girl after bragging about his three Pikachu Pokémon cards. Both a parody of local news and a self-aware examination of weeb life in early 2000s suburbia, the comedic timing on display is pretty impressive for a high school student production. Not to mention, watching it feels like being transported back into the mind of an awkward teenager.
