Are you serious? OK, I'll explain the "correlation:" The OP referenced a "beautiful and amazing effect" from decades ago. It obviously left a strong, positive impression - regardless of what we're seeing in the video. Hope that helps. Feel free to PM me with any questions.
There are also plenty of things that I remember very positively
from 25 years ago that I would now consider crap.
Why should I care if someone thought something looked great 25 years ago? Is that supposed to be compelling/persuasive in some in terms of why someone should enjoy it today? What we can see now
, no long ago memory required (in a video approved by Roth) looks, well... not so great.
And that's OK. No disrespect to Roth is intended as I think he's great.
His other magic comes off quite well on video (even that instance with Letterman in his face).
