Hilarity ensues when today's kids react to walkman technology (VIDEO)

Anyone remember how walkman and cassette tapes were considered the iPods of the 1980s and 1990s?

A recent video by The Fine Brothers shows kids trying to use the device with great difficulty. Most of those tested had even never heard of walkmans and casette players, never mind having the knowledge of how it works.

They were perturbed by the required use of headphones to listen music and that cassette players could only fit about 30 songs, which led one child to exclaim “oh my gosh… I’m thinking about how many tapes you would need!”

The eyes of another child gradually widened as the interviewer explained to her the rewind, fast forwarding and guessing process of listening to their desired song.

Does this video make you feel old?
