The Hanson Brothers Plant a Flag on the Moon - MMMBop 1997

In the age of music B.B. (Before Beiber) there were other pop boy bands who had a grip on tween girl nation.  Hanson was one of them.  In the the official video of their smash hit single MMMBop 1997 they plant a flag in the moon.  It is a blue triangular flag worthy of vexillological note.

 MMMBop is a happy song capturing the happy feeling of America at the end of the 1900s.  The world and America were in a positive happy cycle at this time.

This song is mish mash of American culture that takes bits from the 80s, 70s, 60s, 50s, 40s, 30s, and 20s - it's a final good by to the 1900s.  The century where the we walked on the moon.

It certainly is a secret special flower.  That nobody knows!  When a secret seed of love is planted, when and where it will bloom?
