Someone Made a VCR Toaster and it's as Ridiculous and Awesome as it Sounds - And You Can Make One Yourself!
Fans of Frankensteinian creations melding together rewind-inclined electronics and handy household appliances, you just hit pay dirt.
Its’ true: two things that you’ve probably never imagined mating are a VCR and toaster, but here we are, and we couldn’t be more thrilled about it.
Behold, the VCR TOASTER!
To get to the beginning of this perplexing (but lovable) project, we’ll need to rewind all the way back to February of 2009 where it pops up on Geeky Gadgets. There isn’t much info there, but it does lead us to a page on Instructables where the creator of the VCR toaster starts out by telling us that this incredibly unnecessary but delightfully ridiculous tape player gone toaster was inspired by this particular scene from The Young Ones.
Man, we love The Young Ones.
As ludicrous as it may seem, (and it is) this VCR has truly been transformed into a fully functional toaster, and get this: it even emblazons the letters VHS on the bread.
You can watch a video of how it works below, and if you’re a fan of slow-motion replays, this video is basically pornography.
But how did they do this? Can you really make one of these at home? Amazingly, the entire process on how to create a VCR Toaster is all written out in step by step instructions and referential photos, with a good dose of self-awareness, which you have to appreciate.
Ultimately, this is insane, and we love it. We hope you found this unique rewind-inclined creation as amusing as we did. And to the creator of this thing, we here at Lunchmeat VHSalute you! Or perhaps more appropriately… you deserve a TOAST!
We couldn’t resist.
