Watch: Kevin Bacon tells Millennials about the '80s Published: March 11, 2014

Kevin Bacon thinks life was hard in the 1980s and he wants to tell Millennials all about it, according to USA TODAY.

In an effort to spread awareness about the decade, the "two-time Saturn Award nominee" explains its cultural significance and technological advancements (or lack thereof) in a hilarious video from Mashable.

So, how did he ask a girl out? Bacon went to (gasp) the White Pages and called her house. If she wasn't interested, "you couldn't just swipe away the hurt."
