20 Years Ago on AOL.com: Feb. 19, 1999 -- Jennifer Aniston Is Not Beavis (duh): "Office Space" Opens

February 19, 1999: Either we were uncharacteristically prescient in seeing the enduring appeal of the workplace comedy Office Space, or it was a dead movie release weekend, or we just wanted to feature Jennifer Aniston in the lead promo spot, but we led with the Mike Judge film all day (using a really dumb "She's Not Beavis" headline, ugh):

[Series note: In the late 1990s, I programmed the content for the AOL.com home page, which relaunched with a new design on July 14, 1998. I printed screencaps and saved them. 20 years later, I'm scanning them in and posting them with a little commentary under the tag #20YearsAgoOnAOLcom.]
