Watch teens explore the triumphs and many, many failures of the Power Glove

The Power Glove is remembered by many as one of the greatest failures for the Nintendo Entertainment System, but today's youth is less familiar with its glorious flop. A new "Teens React" video from TheFineBros on YouTube rights that — and allows us to watch.

The accessory was released in 1989  for the NES and allowed users to play games without a controller by moving their fingers. Although the video's teens are initially excited by the idea — weren't we all in 1989? — they quickly find that it's not quite as practical as it sounds. Excitement turns to frustration, and eventually a lot of aimless arm wagging.

Watch the video above to see it all play out, and maybe even take a minute to reminisce about childhood movie The WizardFor once, teens, we share your confusion and disappointment.
