Blast from the Past: Microsoft Windows/386
Here's something Microsoft would have liked to erase from history:

As the Google Video blurb has it: Microsoft sent this tape to retailers to explain the benefits of Windows 386. Boring until the 7 minute mark when the production is taken over by crack-smoking monkeys.

Truly, a shocking document of what happens when PR meets software in the 1980s.

I'm sorry. Now I need to go back to bed, wake up again, and drink a lot of coffee. Maybe then I will be in the world not run by aliens.

When PR meets software? This thing looks so outrageous it feels like it was written, filmed and enacted by the programmers themselves...
