Taste the nostalgia with Microsoft's new Internet Explorer advert

Taste the nostalgia with Microsoft's new Internet Explorer advert

The new advert titled 'Child of the 90s' acts as a blast from the past for Generation Y.

Microsoft has taken to the 90s and pulled on a few heart strings in an attempt to challenge the Google Chrome web browser with their new Internet Explorer 10.

In a time before iPads and XBox's, where yo-yos and cassette tapes ruled the land and Will Smith was repping the faded flat-top, it all seemed so much more colourful.

After watching the advert, those of you that were just about shrugging off the idea of boys and girls having cooties while fanny packs were in full swing will probably be rushing to the attic to find your old toys.

Despite this however, it's ability to knock you back with a rush of memories still wont convince too many people to deactivate their Chrome browser and switch to Internet Explorer.

Still, it's a great attempt and hipsters will absolutely love their new wardrobe and past-time ideas. 

Check out the Child of the 90s below.
