This Facebook Commercial from 20 years ago is currently making its way around Facebook and it really puts things into perspective on how far we’ve come:
Okay so it’s actually a parody of what it would have been like if Facebook was invented in the mid-90’s. It was not. Mark Zuckerberg would have been a bratty 10 year old.
But, what is even more amazing than this well put together parody is the real, yes real, AOL (that’s America Online to some of you) commercial that it’s mocking. It’s hard to believe, but the original is way funnier than the parody.
5 Things I love about both:
- The incredibly high production value
- The excellent use of lighting to create that special 90’s mood
- The Importance of Kayaking
- “Just point AND click”
- 10 Free Online Hours (What a bargain!)
