Skype vintage internet ad

After years of Jezebel and other blogs posting sexist and otherwise laughable vintage magazine and newspaper ads, it's about time someone found a few depicting the early days of the internet.

Of course, Skype, Facebook and YouTube would have baffled patent offices and audiences of the Eisenhower era, but that's what makes them so damn entertaining to read over.

By the way, according to Laughing Squid, "Sao Paulo ad agency Moma created [these] as part of the “Everything Ages Fast” ad campaign for Maximidia Seminars."

I like the computers even though they don't look anything like 1950s computers.

Only the Skype ad could narrowly pass as 1950s (Eisenhower '50s). Facebook's looks perhaps very early 1960s "Mod" (LBJ's '60's). YouTube is late-1960s-through-early-1970s (Nixon all the way!).
