Life in plastic, it's fantastic!

You probably know the song "Barbie Girl" by Aqua, but do you know the video? If not, you should. It's amazing, full of nineties fashion, oversaturated colors, and ridiculousness. 

Bubblegum pop is an entire genre that came out of mainly Denmark in the late nineties and early two thousands. However, besides sugary synths and weird suggestive lyrics, two of the biggest bands, Aqua and Toy-Box, had something else in common- these crazy themed movie-looking music videos. They're all just as cheesy and fun as this one and are definitely good YouTube binge material.
