Not that much difference stylistically speaking, in 2000 I thought we would have futuristic clothes and radical, avant garde pop music in 2020 but it's more like a extension of what existed then.

What is even weirder is that in the actual year 2000, 1980 looked extremely dated, well it was an extension of the late 1970s. The cultural distance was larger back then, now the cultural gap in 21 century years is very miniscule in comparison.

I don’t know man. I think if you were to take someone from 2000 and show them an iPhone 11, they’d be pretty darn impressed. Looks pretty dated to me.

I wouldn’t say the current gap is minuscule, but I agree otherwise. Things like mobile phones, home computers (let alone one with a mouse and color GUI)... digital versions of things such as video games, synthesizers, music, movies... even internet didn’t exist in 1980 for the average joe if at all. They did exist in 2000. FWD unibody fuel injected computer controlled cars were not the standard in 1980, but were in 2000 and still are.
