Nearly 30 years ago, You Can't Do That On Television had a skit where the mother reads the kids a bedtime story, and starts reading a commercial IN the book. The kids use the opportunity to run to the bathroom & comment to each other "what did kids do before they started putting commercials in books?". Now, nearly 30 years later, we have "special offers" kindle, which is a book with ads in it.

You Can't Do That On Television - Marketing 2 - YouTube



They also predicted the dick cheney hunting incident:




Granted, these predictions weren't 100% accurate, but pretty damned close for a 1980s kids TV show.

that would be convenient to have breaks inbetween


(mind you, they should have intermissions in movies again. . .now that they're getting up to 2.5-4ish hours long)
