Vince Gill's "Next Big Thing" was a celebration of past trends, as illustrated with clips of hula hoops, Slinky, and even a GAF ViewMaster. I don't really think the latter was so much a trend, but an accessory that ceased production. I had one of those when I was a kid. "Thing" landed in the top 10 of Billboard's country chart in the winter of 2002-3. Uploaded by the artist's VEVO channel.
