Ahhh, Adelaide in the 1990’s. From happy pants and hypercolor shirts to bank collapses and horrific murders, we certainly had a lot going for us back then.
Let’s see how many of these top 10 ultimate Adelaide moments all you 90’s kids can remember:
#10: The local radio wars culminating with Adam Hills running over Bob Francis in a SAFM Black Thunder.
#9: When city rascal Bart Simpson sawed the head off Colonel Light’s statue.
#8: When Magic Mountain erupted in 1992, spewing lava down the waterslides and killing thousands.
#7: The 1997-1998 Crows winning back to back Premierships on A*Mazing.
#6: When they would spray Farmer’s Union Iced Coffee on the Adelaide Grand Prix podium instead of champagne.
#5: When Jerry broke up with Georgina McGuinness over her pronunciation of “Lego” at a Dazzleland Exhibition.
#4: Keith Conlon inventing the Tamagotchi.
#3: When the Myer Centre had to close for weeks due to a Puggle infestation in 1993. Thousands of wild Puggles were culled in order to control herd numbers.
#2: That time the Torrens was filled with green Gak as part of a Nickelodeon promotion for “Clarissa Explains It All”.
#1: When former Norwood hard man Garry McIntosh hosted his own short-lived Morning Show “Macca In The Morn” which ended after he hip-and-shouldered a grandmother for her subpar vanilla slice in the cooking segment.
