In their continuing series of YouTube videos Kids React, viral video maker Fine Brothers has scored again with a video showing children reacting to a Walkman.

The portable cassette player is now seriously outdated technology and Fine Brothers filmed a bunch of kids aged 6 to 13 trying to figure out how to use it.

The video was released Sunday and has over 5 million views.

    I think my first “portable music device” was a Muraphone brand FM (and maybe AM) radio, right after the radio Walkman came out, ’77 or so. It had solid construction and good fidelity, and even had a soft case. Several cassette Walkman knockoffs walked through my life, too, the finest being a recording Aiwa. i am 50.
