Meh.....its just another CRT tv....no big deal. Now if it was a Sony PVM monitor....I'd be tweaked.

All I can say is at least someone got a thrill out of it... :( So, in that regard it wasn't a complete waste. Perhaps if they'd realised they could be playing Mortal Kombat on that thing they would have made a very different kind of video. ;)

A vintage Blaupunkt will likely give more of a "classic" arcade look than a Sony PVM, in my experience. That said, I've also seen PVMs on the side of the road here that have met a similar fate... :( Very sad.

There are far bigger CRT crimes currently going on in the world. That video was a cruel murder but the shots I've attached (taken by my new mate Rob who's also CRT obsessed) are more like CRT genocide. :(
