1. Oh it was, it was — I was there and I was soooo excited to see my hero Vonnegut… you know, existing. It’s peculiar looking back, sure, but this was also the era in which Linda Ellerbee, a respected newscaster, was shilling for Prodigy, a not-very-respected-but-VERY-early online service, and Harlan Ellison took an ad for the Geo (cheap compact car) so he could say the word “EVOLUTION!” on national television.

    Come to think of it, I think Ellison should do another ad!

  2. Vonnegut is ironic in this ad. This ad is like something Vonnegut would make fun of in a criticial way in one of his books.
