Disney retro-VHS collection announced

Post by James » April 1st, 2020, 12:29 am

Disney has just announced an extremely cool new line of collectables -- some of their recent films on VHS! We got an early review copy of one of the titles and have all the details here:

That one was TOO plausible--The "We still love VHS!" cult is getting a little too preciously vocal, and it's very believable that Disney would try to fawn to them with 90's sentimentality, without really understanding the mindset behind the trend.

Whew, just keep telling yourself, it's only a joke...

I nearly fall for these each year because by the time the article is posted the clock has ticked over to April 2 in the Southern Hemisphere. I initially was like this is cool and then the penny dropped.

Knew it was fake when I saw they were real vhs. Joke would have worked better if it was a dvd or Blu-ray in vhs packaging as we have had things like that.

You're right, that would have been more believable. But I don't think it would have been as funny!
