    I'm four years older than Karen and I always know about half of each generation... The 7-Up one I was able to guess what soda it was from based on the colors but at first I thought it was some sort of early Kool-Aid Man. I was the bomb at Bop-it.

    Here's something I never realized until watching this video: 7-Up's "Cool Spot" and those two "Veggie Tales" cartoons look remarkably similar to the "M&M's" mascots. Chocolate ... I need some chocolate right now. Better go find myself some... 'Bye!

    What Does Karen Know is the absolute best "Does a millennial recognize this?" segment on any show, because rather than making it about "Wow, Karen, you really don't know how a rotary phone works?", it's just reminiscing about different childhoods and joking around about it. Always a delight.

    Is someone going to clue Seth in on what a Karen is? or.... are ya just going to let him keep flounder flopping? NBC used to be decent, but that was before they bent Conan over and fucked him like Marsellus Wallace. Only instead of a barrel, it was right on top of Jay Lenos desk!

    I think she chose better ones this time because I recognized hers and his but hers have more intensity than 7 up commercials. FYI there's a 7up commercial in black in white animated by disney where the house floats away tied to many balloons which is where the animated "Up" came from 7Up

    I'm only a few years younger than Seth and I haven't seen the Rocky movies (although I took a stab that it was Dolph Lundren, but didn't realize he played a Russian?); I had heard of Bop It but had never seen one; and I think Karen's most likely brush with Max Headroom would have been if she has ever watched Back to the Future II. I did recognize the American Girl illustration and Veggie Tales right away. Part of me wonders how gender factors in to some of the selections they make, and whether the other is familiar.
