You Nostalgia, You Lose: Norwegian TV Advert Unites Celebrity Icons In A Blast From The Past

I have no idea how these folks managed to do this, but the people behind Norwegian television show Gylne Tider somehow gathered a whole group of celebrity icons from the Seventies through the Eighties and into the Nineties to sing/lip dub Let It Be by The Beatles. Essentially, this video below is a whole bunch of WTF mixed with a session of “Where Are They Now?” — or more accurately, a video version of the 4chan game “You Nostalgia, You Lose”.
Featured in the video are a few of our geek icons, such as Dee Snider from Twisted Sister, Lou Ferrigno (The Incredible Hulk), Roger Moore (James Bond), Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street), Mickey Rourke (Whiplash from Iron Man 2), and Dolph Lundgren (The Punisher, Masters of the Universe, Rocky IV, The Expendables).
Not only that, but the video also features people, like Alfonso Ribeiro from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, who have been subjects of numerous internet memes over the years. This could also be the last official media appearance of the brilliant Leslie Nielsen who sadly passed away recently.
Want some more nostalgia? Try these names on for size: Jason Alexander, Steve Guttenberg, Tonya Harding, Milli Vanilli, Right Said Fred, and Huey Lewis. Honestly, this Norwegian advertisement has EPIC written all over it.
But don’t just take it from me. View it for yourself below. And remember: if “you nostalgia, you lose”!
