Last night we watched some of our old VHS tapes.
It was Christine’s idea.
And it was wonderful!
A few years ago, I attempted to persuade Mrs H to chuck out the old cassettes.
After last night, I’m glad we didn’t.
We watched ‘The Snowman’ (the David Bowie version).
Then we watched a 1997 Disney promotional video.
Wow! It was magical.
Those Disney peeps know how to sell a holiday. We remembered how we’d watched it with the kids, booked a holiday on the strength of it and then viewed it again, and again, and again…
The whole VHS experience was awesome.
You need to take time.
For a start, you need to get out of your seat and find the video.
Load the tape – schlup, clunk, whirrrrr and we’re off…
But not until you’ve watched the Federal Copyright Warning.
Then the slight static before a 4:3 image appears and the music begins.
You must watch it all.
No flicking, missing the credits, jumping from one show to the next.
And we loved it.
Being part of something where you have to put a little effort in to get your reward out made it better – even something as simple as watching a video better.
That’s why I love TEAM17. It’s only for people who are prepared to put a little something in first to get something bigger and better out.
