I saw this the other day as I was perusing the internet and I thought I would share with you guys. I grew up in the 80’s and 90’s and when you went to rent a movie you would go through all the aisles looking at the VHS cases. Some movies you rented solely based on the cool cover. Nowadays, that has gone away and most people don’t even buy movies anymore, since you can just buy them and save them on your Amazon or Google account. The tactile sense of holding the movie in your hands and being excited to go home and watch it has gone away.

Do not fret though, artist Julien Knez created these VHS covers for April Fool’s Day. He posted on his site that he was a Parisian hipster who only watched movies on VHS. Too cool, I know some of my fellow 80’s lovers will enjoy these mock-ups.
