The funny 90108 joke has been circling the internet for years, but you’ll only understand it if you’ve watched a certain TV show.

It relates to Dawson’s Creek, an American teen drama which aired from 1998 to 2003 and follows a group of friends in a fictional town called Capeside in Massachusetts.

Two childhood best friends, Dawson and Joey, go through different stages of growing up together, but their friendship is later tested when they both start new relationships.

The show stars James Van Der Beek, Joshua Jackson, Katie Holmes, Michelle Williams, Meredith Monroe and Chad Michael Murray.
