Old Excite TV Ads

No Comments

My partner Ryan McIntyre discovered some old trippy TV ads that Excite did in 1996 based on Jimmy Hendrix’s Are You Experienced.  When I saw him in the office yesterday, he was fondling a rectangular black thing that was about an inch high and roughly the shape of a book.  It had two plastic turny things on it and a cover-like thing that sort of – but didn’t really – protect a long thin shiny black strip. He also had a big box that he claimed you stuck the thing into, mechanical stuff happened, and video came out the back of it.  Weird.

Fortunately he put the videos up on Youtube for all to see.  Wander over to Ryan’s post Are Your Experienced? to see the videos and have your own personal Excite flash back experience.
