Ian’s Time Machine: March 27th, 1992 [VIDEO]
Today we're jumping back to this week in 1992 and look at 'White Men Can't Jump', fashion, 'The Price is Right' and one of Technotronic's big hits.
'White Men Can't Jump' came out today in 1992 and was one of the highest grossing films of the year starring Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes. It was about two hustlers breaking the stereotype and making money playing pickup games of basketball. One fun fact, hall of fame head coach Bob Lainer was hired to coach for the movie and was actually impressed by both Woody and Wesley.
Thanks to hip hop group Kriss Kross wearing clothes backwards became a trend, thankfully that didn't last.
In headlines the game 'Buy or Sell' premiered on 'The Price is Right'. It was a pricing game where the contestant would buy or sell an item based on an incorrect price three times and if the contestant ends with a positive amount of money, they win a prize.
Technotronic's song 'Move This' actually came out in 1989 but did't make it big until it was released as a single in '92 and peaked at number six on the Billboard hot 100. It was also Ya Kid K's first ever single release.
