Where are the flying cars? I was promised flying cars!

I just dug up this old gem, a 2000 IBM advertisement.



Good old Avery Brooks.

I remember that, I couldn't stop laughing. Especially with his stark delivery.

Yeah I remember this commercial. They would air it during DS9 because it would obviously resonate with the fans. Great find!!

Well, all I can say is at least he's teaching (and still performing) now instead of doing ads. Speaking of ads, I remember an IBM ad with Gates McFadden too, but I can't seem to find that one. *shrug*

Edit: I was wrong, it was a Microsoft ad. No wonder why I couldn't find it.

"What do we have that no one else has?"

Gates McFadden...Trek's most charismatic actor Sorry, know hard on her and she's not that bad. But she's an Edsel next to Avery's V12 Camaro.
