Funny and Odd Vintage Computer Ads

Honestly I can’t even imagine how computers used to have to advertise to get people to buy their products.   This is before computers were a necessity.  Today, it’s a given that you’ll be buying a computer at some point, and probably every year or two.  But back in the late 70s through mid 80s computers had to be marketed like anything else.

The weird thing is that they had to use the same crappy tactics that companies use today.   They used sex, weird situations, and stuff that really kind of blew your mind.  It’s hard to think of these gimmicks when attached to computer advertising but I think you’ll find that the gallery below is proof of the oddity of old school computer advertising…..

King Kong Bundy?  Now that is priceless.
