“What’s Cool Now But Won’t Be in 5 Years?”—15 Doomed Trends

Remember five years ago? Us too. Okay, barely, but there were definitely trends that haven’t made it to 2021. Seems natural to consider what we have CURRENTLY that probably won’t see the light of 2026.

So when user Foto-shop asked Reddit “What’s cool now but probably won’t be in 5 years?”, folks listed a lot of stuff that has us nodding.


1.

Instagram is going to be an online shopping mall, far removed from the cool micro-blogging site it used to be.

2.

The <insert name here> Nutrition drink shops. MLM bright teas that have no actual nutritional value can’t last forever.

3.

Daenerys and Khaleesi as girls names.

4.

The shelf life of YouTube popularity seems to be shorter than “mainstream” pop star popularity.

Brazilian Butt Lifts .. I feel like it will not age well. A lot of plastic surgeries collapse over time or have complications as it degrades

Life hacks. Since they have taken over YouTube, it just will be bland after amount of time because a lot of it is just BS and many just don’t work now .Many I’ve seen so many stupid harmful things they are doing like “oH PuT YoUR TiN FoIL iN a BaLL anD pUt It iN a MICrowave tO MakE a SmOTH BaLL.” yea like that crap.

Current plastic surgery trends to meet the current IG standards. I fear for a lot of people who have had BBLs and facial surgery that the look will become outdated and permanently associated with late 2010’s and early 2020’s, kind of how like there are plastic surgery trends associated with the 90s/2000s.

Corporations trying to be weird and relatable on Twitter. Wish it would die out now

A lot of the stuff I see people doing on TikTok seems like the kinda thing you’d be embarrassed about in a few years.

Those “lip sync while pointing at words” videos gives me that creepy-crawly cringe feeling.
