Jake Peralta: Cultural Icon
Here’s a fun fact: Jake Peralta has significantly impacted society on a cultural level more than the effervescent, legendary Backstreet Boys. Let that sink in. Well, at least according to the tweet below. You can see that Jake’s cultural impact is measured by four squares, while Backstreet Boys have, well, none.
Hey, if Backstreet Boys didn’t release “I Want It That Way,” then we never would’ve had that stellar cold open on Brooklyn Nine-Nine when Jake asks those dudes in the lineup to belt outlines from that song. Really, we should be thanking them for their significant contribution to the Brooklyn Nine-Nine canon.
