Please allow us to open the Internet time capsule for you that is Brendan Fraser's website.

The year 2005 was quite a time in history.

George W. Bush was in the White House. Tom Cruise was jumping on Oprah Winfrey's couch. Your MySpace Top 8 was all that mattered.

We were living in a post-The Mummy Returns, pre-The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor world.

It was also the year that actor Brendan Fraser seemingly stopped updating his website,

Similar to Space Jam's untouched movie website from 1996, Fraser's site is one of those monuments that stand the test of time, which Reddit users like to flag up now and again.

Just to remind us all of the beauty that can be found in the forgotten annals of the Internet.

Make sure you have your Flash 7 ready, then choose your own adventure to the Flash Enhanced Hi-Bandwidth Site or the Traditional HTML Lo-Bandwith Site for your 2016 dose of flashback Fraser.

Like The Mummy franchise's Rick O'Connell, you are now an explorer-type person.

Once within, you'll be greeted with an intro, which includes music and sound effects.

You can skip it, but why would you do that? Don't do that.

Then, when the icons settle, your choices lie before you.

About. Work. Photo. Bookmarks. Curiosities. Announcements.

Click the "About" tab and you're whisked away to Fraser's life story.

From Act I through Act IV, you can see the sagas that have made him the man he is today.

And by today, we mean 2005 Brendan Fraser.

When will we finally get the Act V update on the site? That's TBD, apparently.

The "Work" tab provides an interactive timeline of Fraser's projects.

The latest being the Oscar-winning Crash (2004) all the way back to Dogfight in 1991.

According to IMDB, Fraser has had at least 20 projects since Crash. None of them are listed on his site, of course.

His "Photo" tab has three areas: "The Quiet American," "People: Vietnam," and "Places: On Location."

You can click a lense to select a black-and-white pic to see it a little better.

You are now seeing the pre-2005 world through Fraser's eyes.

The "Bookmarks" tab is broken up by categories, like "Grace," "Amusements," and "Solutions."

There are helpful ones, like charitable websites, and then there are obvious ones... like

No word from Google on how much of their site's traffic can be attributed to clicks from

Curious about the "Curiosities" tab?

That's just a 'welcome to the website' sort of thing, really.

It welcomes users to the "new and improved" which is billed as a website offering "updates, pretty pictures, and hidden surprises."

As for "Announcements" on the site?

There are only two: photo exhibits which were on display in 2004 and 2005.

There are no plugs for social media accounts. No mentions of more recent films, like Journey to the Center of the Earth or the Texas Rising mini-series.

There is no President Barack Obama, Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio, or Blue Ivy in this version of the world.

But there is a place for you to hear audio of the Looney Tunes: Back in Action (2003) trailer while reading a short summary of that movie's plot.

And that's certainly something.
