A Time When Fanboys Were Innocent, And Sega Was King

A Time When Fanboys Were Innocent, And Sega Was King

Before there were YouTube channels about kids who were Sega fans, and a generation of people who equated being “fans” with being loud, angry and combative, there was a humbler, more private form of fanboy expression: home video.

If you were with us last year, you might remember Tyler, who throughout the 90s had the best run of Christmas mornings a Sega fan could ask for. Well, it turns out that Tyler’s dad didn’t just hook him up with Sega consoles and games, he even made this “TV show” with Tyler in an attempt to get the rest of their family to ditch their NES and buy a Genesis.

I wish all fanboys could be this adorable and innocent. And I’m talking about Tyler’s Dad here. The show starts at around 1:04.
