Remember the time where it seemed like loads of recognisable footballers dyed their hair blonde? Well Javier Hernandez and his pals seem to be trying to bring the trend back during this World Cup.
'Chicharito' and Miguel Layun have been both snapped in training after doing their best late nineties/early noughties Eminem impression, ahead of the last 16 clash with Brazil today.
It's a very crazy look for the West Ham striker and Porto player, and rather fittingly, has happened 20 years after pretty much the entire Romania 1998 team bleached their luscious locks.
And incredibly, it's received the backing of a lot of people on social media - with many stating they will also dye their hair bleach blonde if Mexico win today.
so we bleaching our hair if mexico wins?

It only feels right that the rest of the Mexico team follow suit should they overcome Brazil, one of the tournament favourites, in today's round of 16 clash today.
Back in 1998, Romania celebrated beating England by going all Slim Shady on us for their 1-1 draw with Tunisia. They topped Group G and set up a last 16 clash with Croatia, where they were beaten 1-0.
Granted, Mexico haven't gone full blown yet but there's still time...
