Chris Bundas –
The internet was a very different place back in the 90s. We were’t really connected to each-other, there was no Facebook or Twitter, you couldn’t really buy things, and wherever you could buy, there was fear of insecure credit card servers. Getting music took forever and never mind trying to watch a video, that was distant dream.
And then there was porn. That was pretty much a good day’s effort just trying to get a single pic up on the damn screen! We’ve come a long way since then I’d say, thank you PornHub!
Best shot at getting your rocks off on the net was by strolling into a chat room, remember those! Ah, that nostalgic charm coming back to me, my weapon in right hand, ready to type with the left.
The curators of the Found Footage Festival somehow managed to dig up this hilarious VHS film (which isn’t fake, really) that describes, in particular detail, how to dial up cybersex with your “adult friend” you just met in the chat room.
It`s an odd video, slightly uncomfortable at moments, but quite entertaining for a trip down memory lane.
The world really was a different place.
