    How the times have changed over 20 years...It's a lot like an infomercial, just fast forward to the seven minute mark. That's when the funny part starts and a girl starts singing about Windows 386 :roll:. The best part is, The Inquirer considered it front page news they found this video...it helps to read between the lines. Anyways, here's the clip on google video.

    That is an incredible "infomercial"!

    I thought it was rather odd... but plausible... up to the 7 minute point. But once the woman strips and puts on the wonder-woman outfit... well that was just one hell of a surprise.

    I cannot imagine ANY creative director NOT being fired after producing something like that!
