Facebook Commercial from 1995 offers Free Software and Downloads (VIDEO)

Back in 1995, you could get The Facebook via a free start-up kit with free software and 10 free online hours. Just call 1-800-614-3434! Hahaha!

It’s hard to capture the spirit of the 90’s more than two decades later, but this fake commercial nails it. I kinda want to have dial-up again now just to try this version of Facebook out. Really clever!

Could you believe all this commercial Internet business started with dial up? I don’t even have a landline anymore. Unreal.

Watch the video here:
