Watch Stars Like Coolio Discuss the Internet on MTV in 1995 [VIDEO]


When something is so entrenched in our daily lives, it’s often hard to remember a time when it wasn’t ubiquitous. Such was the internet in 1995.

In this archival clip from MTV — which celebrates its 30th birthday on August 1st — Kurt Loder gives us a primer on what exactly the internet is and how it’s being used, with stars like Sandra Bullock, Dave Matthews and Coolio weighing in.

It seems positively quaint to hear the people in the clip talk about how 30 million people regularly go online when almost a billion and a half do so now. But if MTV had been to capture reactions right after the invention of the telephone, those conversations probably would’ve sounded just as bizarre to us today, too.

Hop in the time capsule and go for a ride:
