Vintage Cover Of ‘Burn’ By Ellie Goulding Might Be Better Than The Original

Scott Bradlee and the Postmodern Jukebox is back again with another pop music cover with a vintage twist. This time, they take on Ellie Goulding’s popular hit single Burn, with Cristina GattiAshley Stroud, and Robyn Adele Anderson covering it as a 1960′s doo wop girl group would

Saxophone player Stefan Zeniuk appropriately adds a little fire to the equation with his Flame-O-Phone.

Their version is arguably better than the original!

Back in the 60′s, CBS had an interesting show about the exciting future, The 21st Century, hosted by the famous TV personality of the time Walter Cronkite.

Matt Novak has gotten hold of a few vintage clips from the classic show, and posted this Walter Cronkite in the Home Office of 2001 video a month ago that now stands with over a quarter million hits

In the video, Cronkite tours the then futuristic home of the 21st century. Amazingly, many of the predictions from forty years ago, such as how home offices would be equipped with multiple screens that offer instant access to weather, stocks, news, entertainment, and more, have obviously come to fruition. 

The video is reminiscent of the AT&T commercials of the 90′s that also correctly prophesied our contemporary world.

AT&T just released this very odd short film from their archives. Simply called “Robot,” the short was made Jim Henson–most famous for his creation of The Muppets–for an elite seminar given for business owners covering Data Communications, a very new and mysterious concept back in the 60′s. The robot talks, farts steam, and has all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a robot thought up in the early 60′s. The video is featured on HaveYouSeenThis and Devour

This vintage commercial was posted online in December 2009, but just went viral now after being featured on BoingBoing, StuffIStole, and LaughingSquid. The black and white commercial is for a very strange Christmas toy from the 1960′s, The Six Finger. The Six Finger is a finger shaped gun that shoots small projectiles, and it even has a pen built in.
