  • (children) Kids react to technology!

  • This episode: VCRs!

  • (Finebros) Okay, so in this episode,

  • - you're not gonna be reacting to a video. - Oh, okay.

  • Oh no. Uh-oh, oh no.

  • (Finebros) Instead, you are reacting to this.

  • What the heck is that thing?

  • What is this?

  • Oh, it's heavy.

  • (grunting)

  • Is this a VHS thing?

  • Is it a VCR?

  • A heavy VCR.

  • You put in your tape, and then it will, like...

  • play music, right?

  • (children) Question time!

  • - (Finebros) So what do you think it is? - CD player?

  • A music player thing?

  • I think it's a projection stream?

  • Is this, like, a DVD player?

  • A VCR player.

  • And it's really hard to, like, program the clock.

  • - (Finebros) It's called-- - Is it a radio?

  • - (Finebros) No. - Alarm clock?

  • (Finebros) No.

  • I give up. Just tell me.

  • - (Finebros) It's called a VCR. - Oh, okay.

  • I knew what it is, but I didn't know the name.

  • Oh my god. I feel so stupid.

  • - (Finebros) Have you ever heard of a VCR? - No, I haven't.

  • Mmm...no. (giggles)

  • Yes, I have.

  • My nana and papa.

  • They have, like, VCR.

  • Yeah.

  • From my favorite show, Teen Titans Go!

  • (Finebros) And it does a few things. You can play movies on it.

  • Oh... okay.

  • (Finebros) What do you use now to play movies at home?

  • - DVD player. - DVD player.

  • Blu-ray player.

  • Xbox.

  • Netflix or Hulu Plus.

  • (Finebros) Another thing you can do with a VCR

  • is you can actually record things off of a television

  • - onto the VCR onto a tape. - Okay.

  • That's cool.

  • Never knew that.

  • (Finebros) Does anything do that today?

  • Called the "record" button on a remote.

  • There would usually be a "record" button on your remote.

  • The "record" button on the remote.

  • You just record it on the TV, though,

  • 'cause they just do it automatically in the TV.

  • The TV. Or is that--

  • It's like a box like this.

  • (Finebros) How would you get this to work?

  • Well, I think we press "power."

  • Power.

  • (clicking button)

  • Guys, this is really confusing.

  • Nothing's happening.

  • Oh, 'cause there's nothing in here.

  • How do you watch it?

  • Is there supposed to be, like, a little thing right here,

  • like a TV thing?

  • Do you need a TV for that?

  • (Finebros) We first need to hook up a television.

  • (sulky) Oh no.

  • A TV? It's gonna be so boring!

  • A really old TV?

  • You guys are gonna break this,

  • and then it's not gonna be my fault.

  • I'm gonna press "power."

  • Boop.

  • - (buzz) - (gasps) It made a noise.

  • - Power. - (VCR whirring)

  • Oh, I hate that noise. Oh my gosh!

  • (Finebros) It is ready now.

  • So we are going to give you a videocassette.

  • (derisively) Oh, I remember these things.

  • I feel like I've seen this before.

  • It's fat, bulky.

  • This is more complicated than a DVD.

  • My friend had an '80s birthday party

  • with super-tiny ones all over the cake.

  • At my old house in Canada, there was a whole bunch of these

  • when we had to put them away to move here.

  • If you put it like this,

  • it looks like a mouth right here and two eyes.

  • And right here, this looks like it's angry.

  • - (Rafi) Yeah, you're right. - (Benny) It does.

  • (Finebros) Do you know what you call that type of a cassette?

  • - No. - No.

  • A cassette.

  • This is a VHS.

  • V...HS.

  • (Finebros) How did you know? Does it say VHS on that?

  • - Yeah. - (laughter)

  • - (Finebros) They call it a VHS. - VHS.

  • I feel like I've heard that.

  • You're just telling me words that I don't know.

  • -(Finebros) Go ahead and put it in. - Uh...

  • I don't know.

  • I've seen these in movies before.

  • (Finebros) No...oh oh. Nonononono. Can you get it out?

  • Oh, it came back out.

  • - (Finebros) No. - Wait. Is it upside-down?

  • (Finebros) No, nonononono.

  • All right.

  • (VCR whirring)

  • Is it gonna, like, grow arms and attack me?

  • Oh. Boom!

  • (in video) One, two, three, four.

  • ♪ (music in video) ♪

  • (in video) This game starts with the holders

  • - jumping and alternating... - I'm watching TV.

  • Go away, Mom.

  • (Finebros) How does it look at the TV?

  • Does it look as good as a DVD?

  • It's not... not good.

  • It's seems like blurry mess.

  • It's really buzzy, like (sputtering)

  • It doesn't have HD like the Blu-ray does.

  • (Finebros) Why do you think there aren't VCRs anymore

  • when everyone used to have one?

  • Because we have made better things.

  • New is new. And old is ehh.

  • The DVDs has tooken over.

  • We have, like, iPhones and iPads.

  • 'Cause it's hard work.

  • Watch.

  • Blah, pah, boom. Done.

  • And then DVD players-- plah, on.

  • People think higher technology is cooler,

  • even though these are basically the same thing.

  • They're just older.

  • (Finebros) So other things about a VCR

  • is, when you would get a new tape,

  • every time you watch the movie,

  • the tape gets a little more damaged.

  • So the more you watch a movie, the worse it looks.

  • Oh. That's why nobody's using it anymore.

  • (Finebros) What do you think about buying a movie,

  • but then, if you watch it over and over and over again,

  • eventually it won't look good anymore?

  • Now, that is just cold.

  • I think that's so bad, and I'm just gonna barf.

  • Bleh!

  • No! Why would you want that?

  • (Finebros) Also back then, in order to rent or get a movie,

  • you would drive to the store to rent a movie.

  • Drive? (fainting sigh)

  • (Finebros) Do you or your family

  • - go to video stores to rent movies? - No.

  • No, we stay at home and go on OnDemand.

  • No, we usually just buy it online.

  • No, we go to redbox.

  • You go to redbox.

  • We just buy it online on Amazon.

  • We watch it for 24 hours for three bucks, and you know, that's it.

  • (Finebros) So finally, compared to how today

  • you can record and watch movies,

  • do you think it's good that technology got better,

  • or do you think it would still be fine if we were using the VCR?

  • I think that it is so much better that we have new technology and not VCRs anymore.

  • I wouldn't even watch anything.

  • The only thing I would do is do my homework.

  • No offense to the creator of this,

  • but WHY DID YOU MAKE THIS?

  • Now it's just so much easier.

  • You don't have to get off the couch or a chair,

  • and you can just go like, remote.

  • I think it's good that technology changed,

  • but it would be okay if it was still like this.

  • It's not as good as today,

  • but I think it's-- they were starting out.

  • So it's pretty good if you are saying they're starting out.

  • Nobody would die if we still had these things today.

  • But it's a lot easier to watch my favorite show, Parks and Recreation, just online.

  • I just click on it and that's it.
