The 2000s is a part of Vanity Fair's The Decades Series. Ten decades, 10 directors. In celebration of V.F.'s 100th anniversary, 10 eclectic filmmakers—from Judd Apatow to Don Cheadle to Brett Ratner—created a film on each era of V.F.'s century-old history and the Zeitgeist that defined it.

The first decade of the 21st century was never supposed to happen. Both the mainstream media and apocalypse-watchers agreed that on January 1, 2000, mass chaos would ensue as a result of the Y2K bug. In "Y2Krazy" directors Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing highlight the monumental events of the aughts, including Y2K, 9/11 and George W. Bush's War on Terror.
