90s kids rejoice: Web browser that no one uses makes a really cool commercial

Internet Explorer ad tugs at heartstrings of Gen-Y users

Whether you love or hate Internet Explorer, you've got to admit that some of its ads are pretty good.

Microsoft's latest IE ad, dubbed “Child of the 90s,” tries to appeal to people who remember the web browser at its worst.

The video shows snapshots of passing 1990s fads, such as Slap Wraps and Pogs. Meanwhile, a narrator describes how things were different back then. (My favorite line: “Lunch was a puzzle, not a picture,” spoken while stacks of Lunchables arrange themselves for an Instagram-style photo.) Take a look.

The only thing I don't recognize in that video is that blue website when he talks about a newsfeed full with farm animals

firefox crashes so many times on me (but I still use it) and I'll use chrome sometimes but I can't get used to it. Sometimes I can't get shit to work on FF but it will work in IE so I can't hate.

I don't get why Microsoft doesn't completely redesign IE if people have been saying for 10 years that it sucks and multiple browsers get released that are better. Why do they keep pushing the same shitty browser?

The first computer we ever got came preloaded with Mist. Holy fuck we were so confused by that game. For a while I thought all computer games were that bad.

Oh lawd my dad was obsessed with Myst. I remember having a shitton of computer games and my family would buy them from Costco. I remember having Dogz and Catz too.

I have such a love/hate relationship with the 90s, lmao.

Even if I was born in '88, I still feel more like a 2000's kid than a 90's kid.

It didn't make me feel as nostalgic as I expected. Ah, well. I guess I just hate IE too much.
sarahfer 25th-Jan-2013 02:29 am (UTC)
Now all I'm wondering is what the fuck I did with all my Troll dolls.

I bet my fucking mother threw them out.

My mom probably sold all mine at a yard sale.

i remember the days of aol... and we used that for a few years... and then i realized how dumb it was and jumped straight to firefox, and now chrome. i never used IE.

Aw I miss the 90s. Things were so much simpler. I also miss the shows that aired when I was a kid.

The 90's <3 My childhood and adolescents all rolled into one awesome decade.
