To celebrate, we’ve unearthed this totally awkward and badly-made instructional video that details how to have a successful cybersex encounter, on the internet. Besides the terrible quality, tacky sweater-wear and truly archaic piece of machinery, what really makes this clip hard to watch is how completely ancient instant messaging was in 1997. Seriously, it took that long for someone to respond to the girl’s “I’m horny” message?
The video is being screened as part of the Found Footage Festival in New York City which has described this informational vintage treasure as such: “This 1997 instructional video can’t decide whether to be informational or sexy and, as a result, succeeds at neither. Tedium has never been this topless.”
