As far as I can tell (and based on her IMDb page), Rashida Jones has never appeared on “Portlandia,” a show devoted to, among those others, keeping the dream of the ’90s alive. But maybe she should consider a guest spot because, like, she’s all about that decade, man. She misses it. Hard.
We know this because Rashida recently popped up on a song called “Flip And Rewind” by Boss Selection, the moniker of her music-making nephew Sunny Levine. The video for the track premiered just a few days ago and it features Rashida sporting a wide variety of ’90s-inspired looks, including the ever-classic backwards Kangol cap…
…the scrunchie-assisted curls with big hoop earrings…
…and the badass bandana badass (just to name a few).
Rashida co-directed the video with her writing partner Will McCormack, with whom she’s working on a script for “Toy Story 4,” by the way, which is really cool.
But can we take a second to talk about how GREAT her vocals on this song are? I mean, like, Rashida rules here. Who knew she could sing this well? Except for Jimmy Fallon, and pretty much everyone else who watched the two of them sing jubilantly about the holidays on “The Tonight Show.”
Rashida and Sunny just did a very playful, very insightful Q&A for Rolling Stone that you should read right now. And then maybe we can all go play “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas” or watch “Clueless” or something. Meet back here in an hour, OK? #go90s
