Another 3DS videographer spotted, this time at a Phoebe Bridgers concert
Who still needs phones at a gig when you have a mint 3DS?
You may remember that not too long ago someone in the crowd at a My Chemical Romance concert was spotted recording (or at least photographing) the show on his Nintendo DS XL. It’s an incredible image to see in broad daylight.

Whether it’s pure nostalgia or simply having no other device to use, it’s definitely a way to capture an important musical memory. It’s very clunky, so of course the online world loved it. However, as we know with stupid and wacky things, they rarely happen once and never again.
Iconic and well-known sad woman (and one of my favorite artists) Phoebe Bridgers played a show on June 14th at the Prospect Park Bandshell in Brooklyn, and I’m sure it was a beautiful moment. I would really like to be there. Of course, people are filming and taking photos, and one photo captured a beautiful moment. Yes, another Nintendo DS has been spotted recording a gig, and this time it’s at Phoebe Bridgers.

According to another person at the event, the 3DS recorder had its console in the air for “the whole show”, which is pretty impressive. While I personally believe that recording an entire show on your phone instead of just taking it all in is a little odd, I find the idea of a 3DS’ entire hard drive being full of a Phoebe Bridgers concert very , very funny.
Imagine this. You are in your room. You feel a certain way. Normally you would put on Phoebe Bridgers Savior Complex and cry, but this time it’s different. You open up your Nintendo 3DS and play the video, and listen to an amazingly compressed version of Kyoto by Phoebe Bridgers on your handheld console’s shitty built-in speakers. You feel happy. Delighted. All is well in the world.
