Everybody has a couch, but I would not call that popular. It is popular when it is spoken about a lot, or people want to wait in line for it.
at least that is the case here. It both might be more common items in other countries. BUt here pretty specific types of people wear them
Got all the other eventhough only sudoku and reality tv were really a thing here. Ow yea and crocs. A lot of the rest was around/available but not that you saw or heard about it everywhere. But none of them are so obscure that the description couldnt get you there even if you werent aware that it had been popular anywhere.
Here it was quinoa btw that suddenly was a thing.
I still find it weird to see guys in tight jeans. (I dont like the look on girls either though)
About chuck norris I am pretty sure though he was glorified before 2000. But maybe all the crazy "facts" about took of after 2000. But a few standard ones were allready around ( like that he was invincible) I guess after internetmemes became a thing it all took off.
