Nelly tries to explain why Kelly Rowland used Excel to message him in their video
We're not buying that as a reason, Nelly.
If you're looking to feel pleasantly nostalgic just listen to Nelly and Kelly Rowlands Dilemma from 2002.
If you have watched the video in recent years you'll be among the thousands (okay maybe not thousands) who asked why and how in the name of god Kelly Rowland was using an Excel Spreadsheet to text Nelly.
Yes that really happened in the 14-year-old video.
The insane incident happens around the 3.15 mark in the song and it's something people have been obsessing over for years.
I will take every opportunity to talk about the Excel spreadsheet texting in Nelly & Kelly's 2002 hit "Dilemma" pic.twitter.com/Bs2FEKr7oc

Well, Nelly finally explained it all, so you would think that that would mean that we would all sleep easy tonight, but his answer was so ridiculous that it's only confused us more.
When asked why the hell it happened, Nelly said:
"That was the thing at the time. That was the new technology at the time."
He added: "It looks a little dated now, I can see that."
No Nelly, it's not dated, Excel is still used in business circumstances, just like it was back in 2002. It was not 'the new technology at the time' for communicating and has never been that way.
The mystery continues...
