Learn About Windows 95 With The Cast Of Friends


(YouTube Link)

Who would make the ideal hosts for a promotional video about Windows 95? Why, Matthew Perry and Jennifer Aniston, stars of the wildly popular TV show Friends, of course!

The casting choice seems a bit odd, but it makes sense in terms of the show's popularity at the time. And, although it seems like a celebrity marketing scheme gone wrong, Windows 95 went large for Microsoft so maybe they were on to something with the Friends connection.

Extra Credit: See if you can sit through the entire ten minute video without wanting to gouge out your eyes and/or jam ballpoint pens into your ears!

i made the mistake of watching the bit when they mention "the red button" and the fact that they shouldn't push it... out of curiosity i had to fast forward until the 4th part the promotional video to see what the red button actually did.. and yes, it was very disappointing to find out what the red button was for... but the good part is that i got to meet all the "wacky" characters.. and yes, that was not good at all, and i despise myself now
