If you're like me, you love watching all YouTube videos in 720p or 1080p - but what about technology from yesteryear - VHS? YouTube are now marking the 57th anniversary of VHS with a tape-shaped button on select videos.

Clicking this button will put a filter over the content, giving you horrific flashbacks to the quality of video from years ago. There's no official list of compatible content, but there looks to be a nice amount of videos on YouTube's native channel ready for some VHS lovin'.
