Perhaps you’ve heard of the World Wide Web. It’s that thing people use to care for their Neopets, look at pornography, and access tons of helpful information on the Internet. Because people spend so much time “surfing the Web,” it’s important for every business have a Web site. Thankfully, Frogtown restaurant Salazar has their bases more than covered.
The Web site for the home of L.A.’s new favorite asada is, inexplicably, a throwback to the best worst ’90s web design imaginable. They’ve got all the essential elements.
1. Brightly-colored flashing and scrolling text
2. Enough Comic Sans to make you want to throw a Tamagotchi through your screen
3. This dancing MC Hammer gif
—which, let’s be real, is the pinnacle of gifs and you need to always have it on hand from now on.
4. This text box that apparently does nothing
—or at least, after spending a good half an hour typing stuff like “what error?,” “hello,” “tacos,” and “p;4rtu8;rajfdgha” into it, I didn’t have any luck.
5. A broken link that leads to a dead page for misspelled URL “salazrla.com”
And all this pixellated magic is going on while a gloriously godawful MIDI rendition of Haddaway’s “What Is Love” plays in the background. Now, when that deep, deep nostalgia for the pre-CSS era hits, you have more than the everlasting Space Jam Web site to turn to for comfort. But seriously, why are you still reading this? Get over there and bask in www.salazarla.com‘s lo-fi glory immediately.
