a little tidbit I stumbled across
Great find FYB! Demographic trends as they correlate or not with pop culture is something I have followed as a hobby for much of my life.
I also wonder, given some of the examples, if that article was written in 2019 or before given how the pandemic has affected some of the content (i.e. reclining chairs at the cinema and public gyms).
Until about 2012, most mass marketing was targeted to the Baby Boomer generation. Such was less the case sooner in very populous areas and more the case afterwards in less populous areas.
With some staid old trends, GOOD RIDDANCE! And with many others, "wow, they really screwed up to let that one go" and the like.
