Viral video fun: A 10-year-old struggles to open a CD

As technology progresses, we slowly forget how we used to do the old things because–well, we don’t need to know that stuff anymore. How many people know how to tune a carburetor? When was the last time you did long division manually? Write a letter on paper in cursive?

Witness Tegan, a 10-year-old from Pennsylvania. Her mother challenged to open a brand new Now 21 CD. The struggle was real.

  • Now let’s see mom set up some music on a reel to reel.

  • Looked to me that her daughter didn’t know it was still wrapped.

  • Now give mom some tech that she has never seen before and record that!

  • Either this is a fake setup for some views or this kid is an idiot. Has nothing to do with the fact that it’s a CD. If you can’t open packaging, you are going to have a long rough life.
