French Artist Turns Modern Movies into VHS for April Fool's Day Joke
Maybe these should actually be real, I'd buy a few of them. "I created these VHS covers for 'april's fool day' pretending a parisian hipster named 'Stan' only watched modern films and TV series on VHS," he writes on his Tumblr. French artist Golem13 posted a full breakdown on his own blog detailing his fun creating a series of fake VHS tapes and covers for modern movies and TV shows like "Game of Thrones", "The Walking Dead", "Breaking Bad", The Grand Budapest Hotel, Wolf of Wall Street, Gravity, Interstellar and Guardians of the Galaxy. As goofy as all this sounds, these actually look pretty dang cool and I suggest taking a look at some of the photos of the vintage VHS covers below. If anything, for a quick smile + laugh.

And here's a good look at his line-up of VHS as posted to Tumblr. My favorite is probably Grand Budapest.
Artist Golem13 writes in his post that we already have vinyl lovers, well now there are VHS followers. And he's here to help "revive the VHS industry!" (yea right). It's all pretend and was all a big April Fool's Day joke, that seems to be just as funny look back now as it was when it first hit. You can see close-ups of each and every cover on the Stan VHS Tumblr here. Such a great idea, as there's no better way to pay homage to everyone's favorite rewindable format from the past than create some actual VHS for use today. This also reminds me of the Guardians of the Galaxy cassette tape they made, which was a brilliant idea.
