Overhyped products return from the dead

In junior high, my best friend and I would fill a plate with junk food and head to the basement to pillage his dad’s LaserDisc collection, a cornucopia of high-fidelity hits like Warriors and Logan’s Run. I remember thinking, “Wow, these 12-inch golden discs are the future.” I haven’t seen one since. The LaserDisc is just one of many overhyped fads referenced in this new video by College Humor, which imagines a world where failed brands reached pinnacles of success. Sadly omitted: the Audrey, the Sega Dreamcast and ordering groceries online. What do you think is missing from the video? Let us know in the comments.
