DKY turned 22 years old today. I often find myself commenting on how fast time is passing now that I’ve hit a certain age. To help put 22 years into perspective, here are some fun factoids from 1994.

  • Bill Clinton was serving in his first term as U.S. President
  • Nelson Mandela was inaugurated as South Africa’s first black President
  • Forrest Gump was the number one movie
  • ER and Seinfeld were the most popular TV shows
  • OJ Simpson took his infamous slow drive in a white Bronco
  • Celine Dion, Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men were topping the music charts
  • Tonya Harding took exception with Nancy Kerrigan’s figure skating prowess
  • The Dallas Cowboys were Super Bowl champions
  • The Wonderbra was invented
  • DKY opened its doors as a full-service marketing and advertising agency in Minneapolis

In many ways, Forrest Gump’s famous line eloquently sums up 22 years of the DKY adventure:

“My momma always said that life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.”

Here’s to the next 22 years!
