1995 Student PSA Predicted Internet's Future Pretty Accurately Well done, Montana 5th graders!
Most old PSAs look fairly ridiculous nowadays, but not this gem of a spot from 1995, shot by the 5th-grade students at Ray Bjork Elementary School in Helena, Mont. These kids were pretty spot-on in their predictions for what the Internet would look like in the future. (In the spot, they look ahead to their college years. But in fact, these kids are all around 27 years old now.) The local ad-awards show recognized the spot's greatness early on, awarding it an Addy in 1996 for best PSA. Via Laughing Squid.
