Frank Ocean fans woke up to a Cyber Monday miracle: For one day only, the artist’s visual album Endless will be available for purchase on CD and DVD, vinyl… and VHS.

For $17.99, fans can both support Ocean and revisit their childhood by purchasing an old-school VHS, which is basically the visual equivalent of a cassette tape.

Believe it or not, a lot of fans are into it, although most users on Twitter thought the VHS option was hilarious.






It should be interesting to see how fans who opted to purchase the VHS version actually watch the album since the last VCR production company closed its doors in 2016. It’s been over a decade since a major VHS release

Up until Monday, Endless was an Apple Music exclusive. The 45-minute video accompanied by 18 tracks shows Ocean building a wooden staircase and then climbing it. The album preceded the release of his highly anticipated Blonde. 

All versions of the album—as well as unreleased artwork and two double-sided posters—can be purchased on Ocean’s website.
