Yesterday we shared a video that we thought showed the utter lack of originality and thought in technology advertising on the TV.
We now realise that we were wrong to mock this in any way thanks to Michael Wawra and Aral who shared this instructional video for Microsoft’s Windows 95 featuring the world’s first, ‘Cyber Sitcom’. (Also as it happens the very last Cyber Sitcom the world ever saw. Holy cow this is bad. It makes Kevin Bacon’s EE advertising look cool.

According to the voice over, “The pace is fast and funny.” It isn’t. This is an egregious abomination and you won’t be able to watch it all the way through. This is a reminder why technology advertising should be all the same. We take it all back.
