Backwards clothing enthusiasts Kris Kross have an announcement that will knock your socks off and then put them back on again so that your toes are squished into the heel part and the toe part is flapping around uselessy behind your heels — they're getting back together! 

Cue the "Jump" dance party! 

It's been over two decades since Chris "Mac Daddy" Kelly and Chris "Daddy Mac" Smith were discovered by Jermaine Dupri in an Atlanta shopping mall, and the duo is teaming up once again for a 20th Anniversary all-star concert in honor of Dupri's record label, So So Def Recordings. 

This is what they look like now, by the way They're both 32. And they wear forward-facing shirts and ties, like sell-outs

But, just for a minute, let's pretend that the past 20 years haven't happened, and bask in the glory of Kris Kross's frontal back pockets. 

BONUS CLIP: Here's an early 90's Oprah segment with Kris Kross, TLC, and Marky Mark. The hardest part of fame, according to one of the Chrises? "I can't please all the girls out there. The girls, they be mad at me because I can't sign the autograph or hug them or kiss them." Well, hugging a man in backwards clothing would feel a little awkward.
