Cyberpresse: “Une disquette? C’est quoi ça?” by Jean-Christophe Laurence (journalist) and Top Multimédia (producer) with the kids from the school St-Grégoire-le-Grand (Québec, Canada), November 23th, 2010 (©)

This video was picked up by the French newspapers Liberation and Le Monde. It was translated and uploaded on YouTube by user mthroser on December 21st, 2010. Since then it gathered a little bit more than half a million views. You’ll need to watch it using Flash Player if you want to see the subtitles (watch it on YouTube).
