Have you stared into the soul of internet today? No? Well, here's your chance. The folks over at Everything is Terrible have taken 50 VHS production company intros — those little animations that played on tapes back when you still used them — and layered them into a single deeply disturbing video.
Last week we wrote about a series of skateboard decks inspired by the labels from old VHS tapes, so this seems like a fitting follow up. What's so interesting about this particular video is the way it's edited. As each new intro is layered over the last, patterns start to emerge: Most of the clips used the same rendering techniques, the same animation styles, even the same lighting schemes.
