AdViews is a digital archive of thousands of vintage television commercials dating from the 1950s to the 1980s. These commercials were created or collected by the ad agency Benton & Bowles or its successor, D’Arcy Masius Benton & Bowles (DMB&B). Founded in 1929, Benton & Bowles was a New York advertising agency that merged with D’Arcy Masius McManus in 1985 to form DMB&B. Major clients included are Procter & Gamble, Kraft, Schick, Vicks, and Post, among others. The commercials are a part of the D’Arcy Masius Benton & Bowles Archives found at the John W. Hartman Center for Sales, Advertising & Marketing History in Duke University’s Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library.
I typed my grad school applications on one of these IBM Selectric typewriters:
The Internet Archive has five episodes of Way Out, a weird mystery-thriller drama series from the 1950s that adapted Roald Dahl stories, in the style of Twilight Zone and Outer Limits. In this episode, a terminally ill man wrestles with a future as a brain in a jar.
From Archive Team (no relation):
So as usual Yahoo! is deleting terabytes of user-generated content and as usual they are doing it in a clunky, fucked-up manner and as usual the timeframe is arbitrary and out of nowhere and as usual Archive Team is here to clean up the fucking mess.
So we’ve been downloading it. We’ve been downloading it for a month. Seriously.
It’s been a crack team of people, all donating time, bandwidth and disk space to download every single video out of Yahoo! Video. We’re at full clip, but we need more volunteers, or we’re not going to make it.
