Ah, the '90s were a special time where mega-sweet snack and drink commercials targeted towards kids had high-octane fuel energy, cheesy graphics and goofy acting. We miss those days. That's why this "Every 90's Commercial Ever" video that dropped today is making us feel extra nostalgic, but in the same vein as Adult Swim's viral dark and comedic "Too Many Cooks" video.

Everything about this video is stylistically spot-on with the '90s commercials we remember from our childhood—including the generic guitar-shredding music to the boing boing sound effects. It's a riff off of Capri Sun's "Liquid Cool" campaign, but the creators of the video, L.A.-based digital movie studio RocketJump, have decided to name their drink "Liquid Slam." And yes, the kids all melt into liquid metal just like the T-1000 from Terminator 2 before some really grotesque and horror movie-esque plot lines surface. Tubular!

Here's the video in all its glory:
