Commodore 64 Christmas Commercials (1986)

Wow, the robot in the first commercial is super annoying. I would like to smash it into little pieces.

On the other hand, the kitten in the second spot is super cute. Having the cat play with the computer mouse was actually pretty clever. Incidentally, when’s the last time you saw a cat in a commercial that wasn’t for cat food?

My elementary/junior high school built its first computer lab when I was in 7th grade and stocked it with Commodore 64s. For the life of me, I can’t remember what we did with them.

    Played games, pretty much. Mostly sad educational games I bet. Occasionally cool games. No one there was qualified for anything more than that. I don’t even remember what specifically we did, but I guarantee you I had done more programming on my own at home before those computers arrived and we never did anything with them. Actually, I was probably more qualified than anyone there.

    Yes, I do remember no one on the teaching staff knew what was going on.
