That would only be something they needed to say if they were watching one of the remastered editions.
If you pay attention, the format they watch changes in each year (in addition to numerous other Easter eggs in each flashback).

In the 2000 scene, they're watching the original VHS. In the 2006 one, they're watching DVDs. in the 2012 one, they're watching the Blu-Rays.

I'd have to go back and re-watch, but presumably its a different version in each of the flashbacks (special edition VHS didn't come out until later in 2001, I believe, and the special edition DVDs didn't come out until late 2004).
