1994 Today Show Asks 'What's An Internet?'

what-is-the-internet.jpg

This is a video of somebody taping their television while replaying a 1994 Today Show in which Katie Couric (nice hair!), Bryant Gumballs and some random get confused about what the '@' sign (it's not a b-hole?!) means (Katie: "I think it would be around or about"), and then proceed to ask WTF the internet is (besides magic). Now I'm not saying I knew what the internet was 17 years ago, but I did and I wouldn't have sounded like a dimwit on a national morning news program talking about it. "Oh -- it looks like we have a caller on the line who claims he can explain exactly what the internet is in 10-seconds or less." Der der, you dummies -- IT'S A SERIES OF TUBES. Katie, keep those yams perky -- GW OUT!

Worthwhile video of the big ball of sadness after the jump.

Thanks to Evil Ares, Lars and jaime, who've known what the internet is since they were born because they're all from the future. OMG, GIVE IT TO ME STRAIGHT: HOVERCARS OR NO?
