The Zack Morris cell phone.
This symbol of 1990s technology was not just insanely cool when it made its first appearance on Saved By The Bell, it was also cutting edge.
At the time, tween viewers like Nick and Chris were collectively amazed. “Wow, Zack can call Kelly and ask her to meet him behind the Maxx for unprotected relations anytime/place he wants! We totally live in the radical future! Gnarly!” So is also the naïve 1990s techno-call that echoes across this week’s film, Ghost in the Machine.
