An intense and widely shared enthusiasm for something, especially one that is short-lived and without basis in the object's qualities; a craze.
"prairie restoration is the latest gardening fad in the Midwest"
If something outlives being a fad, it becomes a thing.
An item or activity that used to be a fad.

Something that used to be a fad but is now apparently a thing, because it's been happening for years now, is girls posing for photos with fake mustaches.
Now, we don't have anything against mustaches...
And I'm ppppprrrreeeetttyyyy sure we're on record as loving the ladies...
|Hello once again, ladies!|
Why? Well, certainly not because of any hang-ups regarding gender identity issues,
|We're soooo far beyond that!!|
More to be revealed later!
