Frank Herbert stars in an 80s Pac-Bell commercial

Postby ᴶᵛᵀᴬ » 23 Jun 2016 10:10



    Asimov wasn’t the only author to appear in advertisements. Frank Herbert’s novel Dune was a major hit with readers in the 1970s, propelling him into the public spotlight in the following years. This prompted Pacific Bell to put him before a camera and have him talk about the future and the upcoming internet.

        Cool! And right on the spot as well. Everything is connected to your phone nowadays.
