Revisit Our Recent Past – 10 Hilarious Vintage Cellphone Commercials

I’m revisiting my post from last week where I posted merely 3 vintage cellphone commercials, which gives us a glimpse of our recent past of maybe 10-15 years ago and how advertisers thought “transmobile” or cellular radio phones were going to change the way we communicated. This time we are using the original 3 from last week plus 7 others that also tickled my fancy as the feedback I received from you all said to keep ’em coming, enjoy!

Prepare yourself for some seriously retro tech, some cheesy commercial toons and some just plain awful hair and click through the gallery. Let us know in the comments below which ads are your favorites.
