Brands Turn Back the Clock and Show Us the World #IfThe80sNeverStopped

And it's actually kind of rad

The 1980s were a special decade. Disco was experiencing its death rattle; Ronald Reagan was the president for almost the entire span; cellphones were as big as bricks; and fashion, oh the fashion was just—tubular.

Earlier this week, in honor of Molly Ringwald and John Hughes's birthday, Comedy Central's late-night game show/Internetgasm @midnight challenged its viewers to play a fun hashtag game, imagining if that totally awesome decade never stopped. 


Of course, brands caught wind—and showed us their take on how things might not have changed. And actually, they turned in some totally rad tweets.

Check some of them out below.
