So kids, tell us, what is the strange black box pictured in the image above? :)
I'm only 16 and I still remember the glory days of the VHS so it's clearly not too good…
If you're 16 now, then you missed the real glory days by a couple of years. DVDs were released when you were (depending on your birthday) only one year old. The major production companies stopped releasing VHS when you were ~10.
You may remember them, and even used them. As far as the glory days, I grew up in one of the largest (per capita) movie markets, am ten years older, and I would say that I barely saw the "glory days" when Blockbuster was still profitable and Hollywood Video was trying to muscle in on the fortunes to be made.
Maybe he lives in the Midwest
Maybe he lives in the Midwest
Because people in the Midwest are somehow less awesome?
yes. In fact pretty much the entire middle of the united states, is just considered "fly over country" i.e. shit that's in my way on my trip to the west coast.
i agree im 29 and only watch vhs and have lived in iowa, ohio, and california.
but when i was in california i watched blu rays.
even before they came out.
Typical lib-tard crap.
I remember my mom not wanting to buy a DVD player because she thought it would just be a fad.
haha, it depends where you grew up mate, I am 20 and grew up in Bolivia, I biked around my little village working as a telegraph message delivery boy. Then from there straight to a 1st world country with 5 year olds owning cellphones- that was a culture shock!
how about betamax?
Or no no no perhaps they should show a picture of Michael Jackson when he was black. Who is this? That'll really stump em.
They need to prove they're 18, not 40
VHS! Haha…. shit I'm old…..
lol im 16 and i know that. i used to watch disney movies on them..
Wow I still have some of those. And a VCR. Where am I? Is it time for my applesauce yet?
Got any applesauce?
Yeah I have a VCR as well. I also enjoy prunes. No joke. :-/
To make matters worse, they're called dried plums these days :p Prune was offensive somehow..
VHS cassete o/
Atleast it isn't a Betamax, that would confuse them altogether.
I think that's a VHS. :B
It took me a while to remember honestly… and I'm 17 XD
crap I still have some of these, here geezer geezer geezer
1. Use Tineye reverse image search
2. Discover name of image
If they really want it to work they should have used an 8-track!!!!!!
Not a new idea. Some of the Leisure Suit Larry games used to ask similar 'adult' questions for age verification. Fortunately they were easily looked up at the library. (Not online, online didn't exist yet.)
Maybe THAT should be the image, then: a library, full of books made from paper. Or perhaps a microfilm machine…
I'm 17 and I know. And i'm 100% sure my 13 and 15 year old siblings do as well.
I say they should have waited on this one a few more years. :P
Oh look at how proud you are! Want a cookie? What a bright person! Get your IQ tested maybe you can join the genius club!
What crawled up your asshole, anon?
Oh look, someone has come to save some random user from bully anon! How brave. Maybe you should take the ring to mordor with that kind of bravery!
dads porn stash.
I`m twelve years old and what is this?
lol'd, we were jsut discussing this over the weekend with 1 of my friends, we were at his place and his kids were wathcing bambi(and we joined them, lmfao) and were talkinb about how his 9 yr old didn't know what a vhs was. she thought it was an old type of book, lols(remember how they came in the cases)
I'm a Hundred percent sure it's a VHS cassette. Haven't seen those in a long time, not since I started going with DVDs…
AN 8 track or maybe a reel-to-reel would have been even better.
Only if you want to verify that the person is over 50 rather than over 18.
It's obviously an old iphone. What else could it be?
put a betamax next time
Funny, but overall useless. I'd be like showing me a picture of an 8-inch floppy disk and expecting me to not know what it is, and those were used about 40 years ago…twice my age.
this is a VHS casette, VHS stands for VIDEO HOME SYSTEM, it’s an implementation of FM on magnetic tape. and holds just a bit over 400m of magnetic tape for a total capacity of 3.5 hours of NTSC video.

I was the first American GI to buy a VHS player/recorder, while stationed at Prum Air Station, Germany, in 1979.
It entertained lonely Americans at that remote mountain top until I shipped out, June 4th, 1982! Movies such as “The Bible”, “Cleopatra”, “Doctor Doolittle”, cost us $135.00 EACH, in the BX! Still have them!
I could have totally sworn that was a Laserdisc :/
I agree that it is a VHS casette.
it is actually confusing. does it want you to enter your age or does it want you to answer the question?
I know, and i'm 12. I knew when I was 8…
This is a VHS, a 'Video Home System.' I'm 17. This is stupid.
It's funny. Everyone who commented above me is a boner.
Nah it's not VHS it's a Beta Max
another good question would be "who loves orange soda?"
Show a picture of an 8-track player and tape. That'll stun people.
im 12 and i now wat that is! not very hard. :P
