How were people cool before sunglasses?
It’s a mystery.
If there were no sunglasses, would ….
– the Terminator, the Men in Black, Neo in the Matrix, the Blues Brothers, or the Macho Man Randy Savage be cool?
Would Corey “Sunglasses at Night” Hart have had a music career?
Would “The Future’s So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades” Timbuc 3 be a no-hit wonder?
I think Joey Ramone would still be cool. You couldn’t see his sunglasses under his hair most of the time anyway.
Elton John‘s cool level would be serious lower, but he’d still be cool.
Elvis ………. shades or no shades ………… would still be the coolest!
note: are there sunglass monocles?
double note: cute dog photo added because some people like that stuff. I’m nice like that.
triple note: In the early 1900s, the use of sunglasses started to become more widespread, especially among the pioneering stars of silent movies. It is commonly believed that this was to avoid recognition by fans, but the real reason was they often had perennially sore eyes from the powerful lights that were needed due to the extremely slow speed film stocks used. Inexpensive mass-produced sunglasses were introduced to America by Sam Foster in 1929.
