Old Radio Shack Cell Phone Commercial [VIDEO]

I absolutely, positively LOVE the cell phone that I have right now.  This is not a commercial endorsement, by the way, although we do talk about the phone all the time on the air.  I’ll leave it at that.  But no matter what brand you happen to own, you’ll thank you’re lucky stars that technology has progressed after seeing this old commercial…

This happens to be an old Radio Shack TV ad from days of old.  What makes this funny is that I REMEMBER this phone!  A friend of mine owned this phone and was probably the first person I ever met that even HAD a cell phone.   When he showed it to me, I said to him “let me have your number and I’ll call you!”  And he quickly responded , in a panicked voice, “NO!!!” That’s because you paid to make AND receive calls back then, and you had to have an extra part time night job to afford it !   Here’s the commercial. Get read to die laffing…

Is that funny or what?  And Doesn’t the kid look like young Bill Gates?   Maybe it was judging from his comments!

If you want to see more of these commercials, there’s a whole slew of them here at  Hysterical!  I can’t even conceive of lugging something like that around, can you?
