Old post search: Walmart display camera footage from the nineties? May 11, 2022 12:24 PM   Subscribe

So I believe I saw a post here years ago (10?) about a very interesting time capsule: a VHS recording of customers watching themselves on a display TV in the electronics section of what I believe was a Walmart (or maybe Sam Goody?) in the 90s. I’ve tried but cannot find this post. Ring any bells?

Is it this? Pre-surveillance society from a webcam's point of view [SLYT] from June 2017.

LOL I only remembered this because you yourself literally linked to it in one of my posts, my fellow jj:
