(Newser) – Remember 1994? Neither does your Newser! But apparently it was a magical time of pre-crazy Mel Gibson, Dems getting trounced in midterm elections, and ... talking heads on the teevee trying to explain something called the "Internet." Observe as Katie Couric and Bryant Gumbel wonder aloud: "What is the Internet anyway?!" Some sort of "giant computer network!" It'll probably never catch on. Clip unearthed by the folks over at Buzzfeed, via HuffPo.

Katie Couric: "Oh, you don't need a phone line to use the internet" Female Anchor 2: "No. Apparently not." Just beautiful.
