Slightly revisionist, as VHS cassette cases weren't the only items with design like this...audio cassettes were also adorned with these designs, as well as film packs etc.

 

Nicely presented though, clearly quite a bit of effort!

Dope music indeed.

I could be wrong, but pretty sure there's a Pink Floyd easter egg towards the end as well.

I am a modern human who can admire bygone aesthetics via a digital medium and not perpetuate the endless pollution of our meatspace with physical trinkets that over time will be worthless as I transcend my decrepit physical confines.

Really ingenious music video in terms of appreciating those old tape packaging aesthetics

Yep

Bunch of hi res scans on tapeheads.net of the inlays and stickers that came with blank tapes as well

 

these blogs are incredibly detail oriented
