This video of MTV explaining the internet in 1995 is everything

Way back in the mid-90s, MTV was breaking their head about this weird new technology that was taking the world by storm — the Internet.

It’s hard to believe, but there was a time when people were still writing about the internet with a capital I, while using terms like ‘cybervoyagers’.

In 1995, they decided it was time to let their audience in on this hidden secret — and what better way to do it than by opening a can of celebrities?

Michael Jackson, David Bowie, Sandra Bullock, Ozzy Osbourne, Moby and — yes — Coolio, they’re all here for this amazing piece of nostalgia.

The wonders of virtual reality, where you can talk to someone pretending to be.. a penguin!

The question remains… are you jacked into the internet?
