Vinyl and audio cassettes have seen a revival so the VHS format could be next as the 'OfftrackOutlet' project.

The 'OfftrackOutlet' project sees modern movies being transformed into vintage VHS tapes that have been rented and viewed dozens of times. The sense of wear on the cassettes helps to increase the nostalgic nature associated with the project and help to identify a media format long since passed.

Several of the VHS formats created by 'OfftrackOutlet' feature stickers identifying the rental cost, while others are emblazoned with bargain basement clearance stickers. The project plays up the newfound cyclical nature of technology that can be observed with consumers obsessed with vinyl and audio cassettes.

The entire lineup of modern VHS tapes can be seen over at the 'OfftrackOutlet' Instagram page.
