This feature is only available in selected videos, check this one out as an example:

So what is this about and what does it do?
What it does is makes videos look fuzzy and blurred and adds static just like old VHS tapes. So basically you can now watch videos in VHS tape quality. Great isn't it???

Well... Maybe not... :) So why was this feature added today done?

It was added as a commemoration to the day when the first videotape was presented - back in 14 April, 1956. You can read more on wikipedia here.
