The Weather Channel Sent Us 80s Swag

The Mediabistro offices were buzzing today after we got the big blue box above with Pop Rocks, a Rubik’s cube with The Weather Channel logo on one side, Sweet Tarts candy, and a CD with music from 1982. Oh, and those t-shirts read “Frankie Says Relax.”

The box is part of the network’s 30th birthday, which it will be celebrating on May 2. These are just some of the things that were hot that year. Also, just to make the olds feel older, the letter that came with the box has a lengthy list of people who were born that year, Nicki Minaj, both Wills and Kate, Jessica “Zou Bisou Bisou” Paré, Kat Von D (really?), and Kelly Clarkson among them.
