Commercial Break: Back to the future with AT&T

11 January 2011

Gosh! Golly gosh! Golly gosh, cripes and, indeed, crikey! Get a load of this future-gazing from 1993, in a series of AT&T ads from the US Of America.

They were made a whole SEVENTEEN years ago, but confidently and correctly predict stuff such as e-reading, video phone calling, portable computing, video on demand and the 2010 X Factor win by Matt Cardle. Okay, maybe not that last one. But the other stuff and more.

We’re off to bang on the door of AT&T’s research and development nerve centre to see if they’ll tell us what 2027 has in store for us. It’d better be edible hamsters that grow on robot trees…
