Classic TV: The 90s : Early 90's Internet Commercial

Early 90's Internet Commercial

It's long but I guess it took a long time to explain the internet in those days.

Re: Early 90's Internet Commercial

I have in my collection a mid-1990s CD-i format disc with a promotional video for the internet (specifically, CD-Online, which was a system that allowed CD-i players to access the internet). Interestingly, one of the things they noted the internet would be useful for is finding hot dates (they already admit at that stage that people on the internet lie about themselves), as well as holding opinion polls, finding information on how a book ends, getting tips on playing video games, finding useless bits of trivial information, and buying things online.

Wow, I just realised that that they were quite correct.

Have you played Atari today?

Re: Early 90's Internet Commercial

I remember seeing those AOL commercials in the late 90s, and it made me want to have a computer so badly.

Re: Early 90's Internet Commercial

In middle school, we had to take a test to earn an "internet license." Our computer teacher referred to the internet as "The World Wide Web" and email as "electronic mail." The teachers back then didn't really know anything about computers. Even when I attended high school in the early 2000's, some teachers were still teaching outdated typewriter rules (like two spaces after a period).
