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.

this thread is probably dead but does anyone remember a computer game about Newberry award books? I can't remember what it's called and can't find any mention of it online.

well played IE.

Not gonna lie, I had a moment at Lisa Frank.

Should have put the Simon game or a skip-it in there though
