Video Of High School Students From 1989 Has Left People Baffled

People are amazed by throwback footage of a group of high school students from the late 80s, not just due to their stunning haircuts.
The identities and whereabouts of these kids are unknown, but it is known that the clip was filmed in 1989.

The clip was shared on the Twitter page "A Slice of History" and has garnered hundreds of comments from the online community.

People were shocked for various reasons, including their speculation that the "students" appear much older than they are supposed to be.

"Man I'm 37 and those kids still look older than me," joked one commenter. Another said: "Can someone explain to me why high school students each year look younger and younger. These people look like they're in their mid 30s."

One Twitter user attempted to answer their question by suggesting that it's due to their style.

"They look 'older' because they continued to dress that way as they aged, and now they are 'old', and we view their same styles as old rather than hip," they wrote.

A second said: "They don't actually look older we just associate traits that they have with being old (such as hairstyles and clothing)."
Another user attributed it to "diet and social interaction," stating that today's food contains many chemicals and preservatives which affect the human body.

"Back then, people actually interacted with others OUTSIDE since they could walk and didn't just have a tablet/phone in their face 24/7."

This leads to the next observation made online - the discomfort of the teens when having a camera thrust in their face.

It is a reflection of the era, as they grew up about two decades prior to the introduction of the first iPhone.

"Wtf no smartphones?" said one, to which another replied: "No we had these things called conversation and books. I was 19 in '89 and it was just the best era."
A third said: "No internet, no cell phones, good music, cruising, neighbors interacting, affordable living. It was pretty great."

A fourth added: "They look older, healthier, and have more self awareness. 99% of them don't even want to look at the camera.

"Phones and social [media] have desensitized some many people I don't know if we will ever get back to this."

Many also compared the students to the cast of "Stranger Things," particularly the season four favorite, Eddie Munson.
Regardless of one's opinions on the video, it is undoubtedly intriguing to watch. It is hard to predict what people will say about today's youth in 30 years.
