Found on YouTube: Canton, SD 1988 Pet Parade

You don’t know you’ve fallen down a YouTube hole until you’ve fallen way down it. First you search for something, find it and watch it. But, that dastardly list on the right side of the screen is just sitting there, temping you. Daring you to watch this, that and the other thing.

Then the next thing you know it’s 2:00 AM and you’ve watching a nine minute compilation of commercials recorded during prime-time on an ABC station in Ohio in 1997.

This happened top me recently when I was researching the Sioux Falls Halloween blizzard in 1991. I was looking for news reports from the time and other interesting videos. That of course led YouTube to believe that I’d want to watch a bunch of news reports and other videos form the late 80s and early 90s. How did YouTube know that? I mean, besides all my previous actions saying that I would.

I love watching videos like that this mainly to see two things: clothes and cars. That was when I was a young kid, but old enough to know what was going on, so I get a huge nostalgia jolt from seeing the station wagons and trucker hats in their unironic contexts.

Along the way I found a treasure trove of videos uploaded by YouTube user bustedpick. It’s a whole series of home movies recorded around Canton, South Dakota in the late 80s. Like this one of a Pet Parade during the 1988 Canton Car Show.

Here’s another cool one. It’s Cruise Night in Canton a year late in 1989.
