The original Nintendo Game Boy was released back in 1989, meaning that it has been 25 years since the handheld gaming console was launched. The console, as far as old school gamers are concerned, is a classic. Nowadays kids are treated to devices like the PS Vita and the Nintendo 3DS, meaning that unless you grew up with the Game Boy, chances are you might not have heard of it.

Well the folks over at The Fine Bros have decided to make the rest of us feel really old by releasing a video called, “Kids react to Game Boy”. In case you’re not familiar, The Fine Bros have released multiple videos in which they record peoples’ reactions to certain things, such as videos, gadgets, and so on. Recently they released a video in which they filmed the reaction of old people trying on Google Glass for the first time.

That being said, the new video features kids who have not seen the Game Boy before. Most of the kids have heard of the device, but not many of them have actually had the pleasure of owning one. In fact one kid thought that the Game Boy was an iPhone case, although we can’t really blame him for thinking so. Some even thought that games had to be downloaded like apps, and some had a hard time figuring out how to put in the cartridge, let alone trying to turn it on.

In any case it’s a pretty funny video, as expected from The Fine Bros, and if you ever wanted to feel old or maybe relive some nostalgia, check out the video above.
