Kids Have No Idea What a Walkman Is

The Fine Brothers/Youtube

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.

In the video below, vloggers The Fine Brothers ask a bunch of kids to figure out what the bulky electronic device on their hands is. After multiple wrong answers, the youngest of the bunch guesses correctly. Clearly she’s got hipster parents. What transpires next will simultaneously make you say “aww” and make you feel old.

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.
