If YouTube was invented in the '90s

Parody shows how bad video technology was 20 years ago

By  

The very funny SquirrelMonkeyCom YouTube channel, already responsible for videos showing us what Twitter or Google would look like if they were invented in the 1980s, has a new video out showing us what YouTube would have looked like 20 years ago. The video site, which recently celebrated the seventh anniversary of the first video being uploaded, would have looked pretty bad back then. A bit NSFW for some language, so keep the sound down a bit.

Sadly, 20 years later, some of the videos I see on YouTube still look like the ones highlighted in the video.
