Got a gig for a commercial emulating turn of the millennium style kids commercials. In the directing style of those, what are some things that stand out to you from that era?

What I have on my list so far is: wide angle lenses, dated CG, happy-go-lucky music, frequent use of fast-motion, saturated colors, and either a very dire or very youthful narration.

 

I'll link a few to give you an idea.

 

Burger King circa 1999

Sour Bubble Tape circa 2002

Kool-Aid circa 2001

Gameboy circa 2001

Thanks for any pointers if you have 'em. Link others of this style if you have something that further contributes to the feeling of that era.
