Space Jam Forever
Who could forget the story of that one evil alien theme park owner whose need for a new attraction at Moron Mountain led him to Planet Earth to kidnap Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tunes and then challenged them to a basketball game to determine their fate? Not me.
Allow me to take you on a stroll down memory lane because I think you’ll get a kick out of this. All of the Space Jam’s marketing efforts were launched in 1996 for the release of the film, and more than two decades later, the Space Jam Forever website is still standing. Oh yes!
What’s so great about a site that has laid more-or-less dormant for over 20 years?
The Space Jam Forever website was built using the most basic form of HTML coding. The kind of coding that was used when the internet was invented. The Internet is exponentially bigger than it was in 1996, and rediscovering a site almost entirely unchanged from its initial launch is the web’s equivalent of a recently discovered dinosaur fossil. Rolling Stone calls it the website that will never die, which to me is hilarious partially because this is a childhood gem but mostly because I’m a total nerd.
