Kevin Bacon wants to tell people born after 1985 all about the 1980s. / Richard Shotwell, Invision/AP

Kevin Bacon thinks life was hard in the 1980s and he wants to tell Millennials all about it.

In an effort to spread awareness about the decade, the "two-time Saturn Award nominee" explains its cultural significance and technological advancements (or lack thereof) in a hilarious video from Mashable.

So, how did he ask a girl out? Bacon went to (gasp) the White Pages and called her house. If she wasn't interested, "you couldn't just swipe away the hurt."

What was Bacon's favorite app? A Rubik's Cube!


Then, Bacon gets realy deep, comparing the current situation between the United States and Russia with the Cold War.

"You couldn't even skateboard to a Blockbuster without getting nuked," Bacon said. At least that's what happened to his friend, Tommy.

Perhaps the best gem is that he is perturbed that people born after 1985 will never know how comfortable parachute pants are.
