Floppy Drive Quartet Sings Portal's "Still Alive"
Floppy drives, one of the many forms of digital storage to become completely obsolete in the past decade or so, have one final use up their collective sleeve: They can play music in a way that is amusing to audiences that are familiar with with what floppy drives were originally used for. That is to say, in a few years, kids won’t find this amusing because the only frame of reference they’ll have is videos of floppy drive songs. But I digress. The joke is that the floppy’s are singing “Still Alive” when they are an entirely antiquated storage mechanism. Haha! Also it is Portal reference; the kids love those. Huzzah!
Tape of the performance after the jump. What? No one uses tapes any more either?!
- Today’s software if it was on floppy disks
- Floppy drives singing the Star Wars Imperial March
- MiniDiscs. Ha.
