TikTokers are sharing ’90s throwback photos of their parents as part of a new trend set to Bell Biv DeVoe’s hit “Poison.” Part of the appeal of this trend is seeing iconic ’90s style.

There are over 90,000 videos linked to the audio on the app.

Lyrics:

..now you know!
Yo, Slick, blow..

It’s drivin’ me out of my mind!
That’s why it’s HARD for me to find
Can’t get it out of my head!
Miss her, kiss her, love her

TikToker @spiritmonet shared what her dad looked like when the song was released, and yes, his style was very Fresh Prince of Bel-Air cool.
