If the 90’s and early 00’s taught us anything, it’s that anything that’s normally totally bogus and square can be turned awesome and tubular simply by making it EXTREEEEEEEEEEME. There were (and still are) a lot of extreme variations on mundane everyday crap, such as TV shows, food, sports, and everyday household items.
But how any of them actually ARE “extreme”? Which of these products truly fit the bill of being, as dictionary.com puts it, “utmost or exceedingly great in degree…exceeding the bounds of moderation”?
Well, not very many. For every extreme snowboarder who rides an avalanche from top to bottom, or for every extreme metal-head who screams and thrashes through death-and-gore obsessed riff-fests that average 375 beats per nanosecond, there are countless others who use the moniker solely as a marketing tool, hoping it will cause their bank accounts to fill up to the EXTREEEEEEEEEME.
