5. Jonathan Taylor Thomas (who, of course, voiced young Simba) is now older than Matthew Broderick was when he voiced adult Simba.

Broderick was 32 years old when The Lion King was released, while JTT is 35 years old today.


9. In six years, Britney Spears will be eligible for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Sony Music

Artists are eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first record or single. "...Baby One More Time" will be turn 25 in 2023.

12. If That ’70s Show debuted today and was set the same number of years in the past as it was during its debut, it’d be called That ’90s Show and would take place in 1995.

Fox Television

The series, which started in 1998, took place 22 years earlier, in 1976. So in the "show" they'd probably be in Eric's basement getting high and watching Reality Bites and Jurassic Park.


13. Not freaking out? Well, Freaks and Geeks could take place 1998. Which is only ONE year before the show actually premiered in 1999.

14. Most kids graduating high school today were born in 1999, which is a year after TRL first aired.

TBH, they probably don't remember ever having to watch a music video on TV.
