The Infestation of Reboots: Why Nostalgia Sells

From Psych IRL.

Since the last 2 topics were quite dark, it’s time for a topic that’s a little more chill. This video is a viewer request regarding the uptick in media that evokes nostalgia. Request: “I think the psychology of nostalgia/nostalgia cycles would be really interesting! Like how currently we’re seeing a resurgence of 90s + early 2000s trends, which falls right in line with 30 year nostalgia cycles. Maybe even how the pandemic seemed to strengthen the nostalgia due to people seeking comfort through familiar media?”
