Kids Try Walkman For First Time, Cassette Tapes Confuse Them

(0) Comments | Posted November 17, 2015 | 9:16 AM

Kids these days may grow up Internet-savvy, but ask them to load a tape into a Walkman and you may have a problem.

The video above shows two brothers as they fumble their way through playing music on a portable cassette player.

"We found an old Walkman and tapes from the 80s. My kids had no idea what to do with it!" the description posted to YouTube by the boys' mom says.

But really, it took a couple of tries.

"I think it involves something with the ribbon," one boy says. "You pull the ribbon."

The boys eventually figure out the silly device -- without pulling the ribbon -- and enjoy some tunes.

The video was posted in September, but recently gained viral traction with over 150,000 views on YouTube.

The portable Walkman music player, which debuted in the late 1970s, has gone from the pinnacle of on-the-go-listening to merely resembling odd black bricks, according to some kids.
