The Truth Behind "The Macarena" Will Leave Your Jaw On The Floor

- Page 1

Growing up, there were many not-so-innocent movie plots and song lyrics that went over our naive heads. I mean, we even happily sang some of them out loud in public without even knowing what they meant.

Now that we're older, we've come to the realization that the world isn't as squeaky clean as we believed it to be while we were growing up in the 90s.

At some point, we have all experienced that "Aha!" moment when we learn that something we enjoyed while young isn't as innocent as we thought it to be.

For a lot of 90s kids, this moment happened recently, and it involves the very popular dance tune, "The Macarena."

The song was released in 1994 by the Spanish pop duo Los del Río and its catchy beat and iconic dance moves instantly inspired a craze. No wedding, bar mitzvah or reunion in the 90s was complete without people breaking into the dance.

Even today, some of us still do the dance and try sing (more like mumble) the fast lyrics every single time the song is played, but we still had no idea what the song is about, until now.

The curious minds at Distractify Video got to the bottom of the mystery, and our innocent 90s souls weren't ready for this.

Are you ready to find out what the song is really about?

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam. You might not think that a silly 90s movie about basketball could top decades of cartoons, but guess what, it was pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me. Warner BrosSpace Jam came out in 1996 and it

'Mad About You' Stars Officially Sign On To A Revival And Reveal What They've Got Planned

We knew it was a possibility that Mad About You would come back, and now it's looking as though it's a lot more likely as both former stars have signed on for a revival. In the last year alone, we've seen two other huge 90s hits come back and exceed expectations. Will & Grace came back to NBC after a political commercial kind of took over everyone's minds and we realized we wanted more. And of course there is Roseanne as well, which has been killing it in the ratings every episode. It's honestly only a matter of time before all
