In the series, Brownlee, known by his channel name MKBHD, unboxes, reviews, and reveals the greatest vintage tech-driven products that defined pop culture and changed the world as we know it. The six-episode series is set to debut in December on Brownlee’s YouTube channel.
The series announcement comes on the heels of the YouTube Original Special of the same name, which debuted today. (You can watch it below the post).
In each episode, Marques will examine a different nostalgic product – many of which he has never used – exploring the history, impact on society, and creators who made the product come to life. The series will guest star YouTube creators, educators and inventors who will be announced at a later date.
