Upon observing the checkout counter, the date 11/25/05 is clearly visible as individuals have their items scanned.

As soon as the video was uploaded on the platform, individuals were eager to reflect on the nostalgic memories of the past.

Another person lamented, “It’s hard to believe that years later we would be scrolling through social media and reminiscing about how much simpler things were in the past.”

“I was shocked to discover that the cooking oil, which had previously been priced at 23.96, was now being sold for 48.97 at the Walmart where I work. It’s unbelievable how much the prices have risen over the years for the same oil and brand.”

“I was reminded of how poor our fashion sense used to be. American Eagle, Hollister, and Aeropostale were the only brands I wore,”another person joked.

There are numerous viral videos that have been causing waves of nostalgia among viewers. In February, a YouTuber shared a video of an abandoned McDonald’s restaurant from the 90s.
