Kids React To Walkmans, But Don't Know What One Is Or Does

Modern children are the worst. They don't know whether dictators are characters from history or fiction, they don't know what a rotary phone does, and now it turns out they can't understand a Walkman.

To borrow a line from Stewart Lee, it's as if they can only understand the world with the mind of a child.

Anyway, this video in which modern kids try to work out what to do with a portable cassette player is adorable but also sort of terrifying.

Because if you've ever owned a tape player - in fact, if you even know what to do with one - then you are old and must prepare to depart this world on some kind of westward sailing elven ship as soon as is practical.

Take a look, and weep.
