A seriously good ad


This ad ran the week after IBM entered the home computer market.

You can probably read the copy if you squint. If not click the pic to enlarge.

All it takes is one read to know that this ad would never get past our learned friends in the legal department these days.

In fact I could rant on for days about how 'risk adverse' legal people are slowly but surely sucking the life out of advertising.

But I'll save that for another day.

In the mean time enjoy this timeless ad that helped bring "American technology to the world".
