Awful Classics: Call up the New Kids on the Block

Nothing quite says the ’90s like New Kids on the Block and phone numbers which start with 1-900. This incredibly awful trip down nostalgia lane combines those two ideas as the New Kids urge you to call their 1-900 number in order to join their fan club.

So much ’90s, so little time. We can’t even keep count of how many New Kids songs are mentioned during this 30-second spot.

Giving the New Kids on the Block will only set you back $2 for the first minute and $0.45 for every minute after that. Holy crap! That’s expensive now, but that’s insane for the ’90s. We can only imagine how many kids were grounded after spending far too long on the phone.
