Bruno Mars & Cardi B's 'Finesse' Remix Takes Memes Back to the '90s
Cardi transported us right back to the pre-2000s with her flow reminiscent of early '90s rap legend Heavy D, and a new jack swing beat to match. It almost felt like you were watching through a bulky tube TV.
As expected, the social media sphere has been in a frenzy since the release, and fans have been expressing their delight with the visual in the most social media efficient way possible: meme-ing.
Folks hit Twitter shortly after the release of the infectious video, not only to simply show appreciation to the unavoidable groove of the track, but to also liken the video to all their favorite '90s memories -- including the TV shows In Living Color, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Martin.
Check out some "Finesse" remix-inspired memes below.

The year is 1999. Mom’s driving me to school. This is blaring out the speakers. I crush all the “we got it goin on, we got it goin on’s.” I jump out the Ford Expedition, give a head nod to Moms. Point at my crush. She knows. Nike sneaks. Nike tee. Let’s do this. #FinesseRemix pic.twitter.com/WHGqGOILu7— It’s Kevin (@famouscevan) January 4, 2018
