(Nov. 16, 2015) – No doubt, technology moves at an incredible pace, but a video making the rounds will make some of you feel very old.

Lena Hyde posted a video on YouTube after finding an old Walkman and some cassette tapes. Then she asked her kids to make it work.

From the YouTube description:

We found an old walkman and tapes from the 80s. My kids had no idea what to do with it!

The kids make several attempts to figure out how to insert the tape and later ask for help, “Mom, do you know how to do it?”

Eventually, they succeed: “Yay, I did it!”

“I’m so proud of you,” their mom replies.

The video was originally posted in September. It’s been shared more than a million times on Facebook and YouTube.
