Sure, the internet is great for movies and all, but remember when we used to watch things on physical media? No, not your Blu-ray or DVD nonsense, we’re talking good old fashioned VHS tapes! … What? ‘What’s a VHS, grandpa?’ Why, naturally it was… um, actually VHS wasn’t all that great, but today the ancient format was made ten times cooler, because someone managed to make their own homemade VHS copy of the Sonic movie!
This was the handiwork of one ‘SavageXtreme64’ on Twitter, who took the time to convert the digital version of the Paramount action flick into analogue and made some convincingly good packaging to go with the tape. We can totally imagine this sitting in the ‘New Releases’ shelf at our local Blockbuster Video.
‘SavageXtreme’ also shared a video of the tape being inserted into a VHS player and playing as you’d expect a home movie to work in the 1980s and 1990s. Complete with wiggly tracking as well. You can see that video below.
We have to say, this is one bang-up job! Obviously there’s probably no money in Paramount making the effort to release an official VHS version of the Sonic movie, but boy would we sure buy it for our collection if they did! And we wouldn’t be dreaming of this right now if it weren’t for ‘SavageXtreme’ leading the way. Good work!
