sAds are kind of like your awkward teenage years. Think about it: When you're actually experiencing them, every second feels an angst-ridden eternity. Look back a couple decades later, though, and it's damn near impossible not to laugh.\nNow, I'm not suggesting you go out and start bragging about that mullet you were sporting in the 80s (sorry, Uncle Jesse, but that kind of confession may never be advisable). No siree - with antiquated ads, you can revisit the comedy of bad choices without suffering a single ounce of personal humiliation.\nWe've compiled 25 of the funniest vintage tech ads we could find. Some will make you laugh; others will make you cringe. But nearly every one will make you wonder what the hell we all were thinking.
