An ancient and absurd technology which forced humans to purchase excessively large disks which held movies for viewing on an excessively large device for a brief period of time. Hipsters now find these large discs trendy and accumulate them to host "Laserdisc'ing parties" where they gather, drink PBR's, and watch movies such as The Notebook.
