“Throughout their entire clip, Charli and Sivan play a wild game of dress-up, taking on the personas of some of the decades’ biggest icons: Britney Spears, Eminem, the Backstreet Boys, TLC, the Spice Girls, Neo and Trinity from The Matrix, and Steve Jobs. The two portray couples, too, such as Jack and Rose from Titanic and Marilyn Manson and Rose McGowan. Additionally, there are references to Nokia phones (obviously the one with snake!), that one petals scene from American Beauty, Skechers sneakers, and, of course, the social media platform before them all: AOL’s AIM.”
