Kids. They might be young, healthy, full of potential and just generally upbeat. What they’re not, however, is knowledgeable about Walkmen.

No, not the aught-era indie band (though they probably don’t know about them either). I’m talking about the cassette player, the device that, for many of us, was the source of the greatest pleasure and comfort during our teen years.

If this video made you feel your age, take solace in the fact that none of these young whippersnappers will ever feel the pure joy of putting together a mixtape.
