It’s a supercut of the weirdest movie scenes with computers and computer interfaces from a time when even copying a simple file to a floppy was shown as some sort of magic trick.

YouTuber elsafrickey collected a whole bunch of these scenes from the 70s, the 90s, but mostly from the 80s. Obviously, a giant flashing “ACCESS DENIED” sign looks more exciting on the big screen than someone typing “c:\donotopen\topsecret.txt” in a tiny MS-DOS window, but still, it’ll always look silly.
