Just like our favorite French singer, today we’re talking to you about a time unknown to under-25s.

Born with an iPhone in hand, representatives of Generation Z will not have the opportunity to know the wonderful things listed below:

It was used to light a cigarette while driving your car. It was also used to cause burns to children who were waiting in the car for dad to buy a case of Laurentide.

Pager (or “Pager”)

It is used to say that someone wants to talk to us, but we cannot speak directly into it. To do that you need to find the phone.

A cassette rewinder

It used to rewind VHS tapes faster than a VCR. Rewinding tapes is essential for one reason: not to be fined at the video store.

Wired remote control

It is used to change the TV set without having to get up from your chair. A revolutionary!

RCA cables

Before taking them to Jean-Couture or Direct Film to be developed, the photos were used to store films stripped of light.

Many “youngsters” mistakenly believe that the NES was the first popular video game console. This is wrong. Many Quebec homes have an Atari or a Commodore 64 or an Intellivision or a Colcovision.

It was used to heal all possible and unimaginable wounds by making a beautiful orange sun above.

A rolodex

It is used to write contact information of people you know. Kind of like the “Contacts” application on a cell phone, but for real.

Cassette with auxiliary wire

It was used to play compact discs in a car with only a cassette player. We plugged the wire into a portable compact disc player, put the duplicate cassette into the stereo, and magic!

A Simon

It was used to play a memory game with colors and sounds.

An overhead projector

Unlike a “retro projector”, an overhead projector is used to project images onto a wall or screen. Images should be previously printed on acetates.

Bottle Opener (BOB)

As its name suggests, it was used to open a beer bottle when it was still a beer bottle.

A multi-point club calculator

It used to accumulate points by watching TV, which were then redeemable for discounts at the grocery store and allowed you to enter contests.
