This new HP video, dubbed “Computer Show,” hits the sweet spot perfectly with its recreation of a Reagan-era public access show about technology, but with a fish-out-of-water spin. The host is stuck in time—stilted stage manner, goofy haircut and all—but his guests are current-day tech pioneers. Awkward hilarity ensues.

"Lets get it on!"

Dead silence.


That was great.

Don't just watch TV, PLAY IT!

They seemed to get the 80's sound and video VCR'ish look down pretty good. Aside from the modern day sharpness.

Love slow-moving adverts compared to the hyperactive crap produced today.
