Rewinding during recording

From Home Video

Sometimes, when a videotape ends, a rewind of the master tape gets caught in the recording. This strange videotape ending likely occurs due to an error where the employee(s) at the duplication facility accidentally press the rewind button on their master tape machine, before pressing the stop button on the videotape duplication machine to stop recording the videotape, thus this ending is slightly rarer than any other strange ending that happens to videotapes.
