The 2000s were an absurd decade. From low rise jeans to seemingly never-ending hairclips, the 2000s brought a special dose of crazy to all sorts of media and culture.

For a dose of nostalgia that is sure to ring through your head for the next few weeks, check out these catchy, cringey, classic 2000s commercials.

5. Tread carefully listening to this one. It’s dangerously catchy.
