Back in 1994, no one knew what the internet was

today-show-1994Back in 1994, you would be hard pressed to find someone who knew what the internet was.  In fact, in the rare clip below, Katie Couric and Bryant Gumbel are hosting The Today Show and have absolutely no idea what it is.  They had to ask someone off camera to explain it to them.  Bryant Gumbel even asks at one point, “Do you write to it? Like mail?”. 

If only they had released Jay and Silent Bob in 1994, Ben Affleck could have answered all their questions.
