This video by 2Factory depicts old and new items that have either decreased or increased in popularity over the last year. This colorful video shows a resurgence of retro themes, like taking pictures with film over digital cameras, using bikes instead of scooters and favoring vinyl records over CDs.

The graphic side-by-side comparison of objects presents new and old items in a stylized manner, showing what is “out” and what is “in.” The humorous video even touches on scandals like the swapping of beef for horse meat, and other hot topics in pop culture like moustaches, touch-screen devices and coffee.

The stylization of the items makes the video all the more charming and easy to relate to, since these are items typically encountered in one’s day to day life.
