This reminds me of a VHS tape I had when I was a kid. We didn’t have a lot of tapes in the house, so when I wanted to tape something I was using stretched-out, overused tape stock. One program I recorded looked so blurred and burnt that a loud buzzing noise came out of the speaker whenever a lot of red was in the picture. I remember thinking that the color information must have bled onto where the audio track belonged on the tape.
