This Wendy's Training Video Is The Most '90s Thing Ever

In case you haven't heard, the '90s are back. From fashion trends like wide-legged jeans to TV shows like "Friends" that never really went out of style (via Cosmopolitan), the '90s are alive and well in 2021.

If you're looking for an extra dose of '90s nostalgia, search no further than this training video from Wendy's (via YouTube). Posted on the Youtube account Chuck Drake, the video, used to teach employees how to prepare cold drinks, is probably the most '90s thing you'll see today — and maybe ever, without actually being able to relive the decade.

It's so good that in 500 years from now, cultural anthropologists will likely uncover this masterpiece and use it as the basis for all research and claims about the elusive last decade of the 20th century.

The video has over 2 million views, and though it was first posted to YouTube over 10 years ago, this marvelous training video is still reaching new eyeballs every day, with some of the top comments from just a few months ago.

This Wendy's employee tutorial is a rap

In the training video, a young woman — decked out with a short blond bob and a thick headband — raps everything you could ever need to learn how to properly serve cold drinks in a Wendy's restaurant.

"Drinks. Cold. Are you ready? Here we go," she sings. The video features intense overlays and bright white saturation that was a near-standard of the era. Aside from the aesthetic of the video itself, the actual music practically screams that it came from the '90s. It's got everything we love about the decade aural stylings: a drum loop, an electronic synth, rhythmic lyrics. It's a true '90s soundscape.

Maybe the best part, though, is that the lyrics are actually pretty informative. You can learn a lot about the procedures and roles that Wendy's employees had to take up during that decade.

"Use the scoop to fill the ice, never use the cup take my advice," the actress sings. Later adding, "Tilt the cup against the lever. Keeps the foam down, isn't that clever?" If the video isn't enough, the comments provide even more entertainment. "I feel like Wendy's was experiencing the 90's much more vividly than we did," one comment reads. "This is Vanilla Ice's sister, Vanilla Coke," another user joked. And even though the video is just under two minutes, entire college dissertations could probably be written exploring all the reasons this is the peak of '90s content. The best part? If you're thirsty for more vintage training videos, there's also one for "Hot Drinks" (via YouTube).
