Judging by all the recent fuss about equality, "the little difference" (gender obsession), I believe today everything's possible. 😂
Especially if the baby is cis, white, male with brown hair.. 🙄
Nah, let's just relax and watch "The life of Brian" and "Monty Python and the Holy Grail"! 😁

there is something i miss about the 'product' of a tape or dvd though, the box art and blurb, the insert (if any), the opening graphics and selection menu (dvd) and all that. more of a sense of occasion than "resume watching " as indeed cinema used to be more of an occasion than a VHS tape
I feel the same, I think. I always loved the little extras in VHS cases.
Little ads, post cards, pictures, cards etc.
Edit: To name an example:
Back in ~2000, I bought a VHS of ST: Voyager at a petrol station.
It had the final episode with the confrontation between future Janeway and the Borg Queen.
Besides the VHS, there was a glossy photograph (postcard) of the Borg Queen with a signed autograph of the actress.
Sure, it wasn't hand signed. But it was a nice gesture torwards the fans, still.
In the 80s/90s, those laserdisc releases were fantastic!
They weren't for the masses, but film lovers. They had beautiful cover art, extras, an episode list on the foldable pages and so on.
All in all, that was something really special. It reminds me of these "feelies" that came with physical game releases in the 80s/90s.
Back then when we still had box releases of games with manuals, fictional newspapers, diaries and sort of talisman-like objects all related to the game's story.
