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.

Soda Stream is the new at-home water carbonation soda maker system that is taking the soft drink industry by storm.

For the Superbowl this year, they made this commercial pinning a Coke deliveryman against a Pepsi one, as seen so many times before in the feuding beverage companies’ commercials.

But usually, one of the men comes out on top. This time, they both fail, as Soda Stream doesn’t need bottles to be delivered. 

As CBS is so tied up with the mega corporations, they actually coward under pressure from both Coke and Pepsi to not air the commercial.

CBS actually complied, but now the Streisand-effect is occuring, and the commercial is going viral specifically because it was ‘banned.’ Now, the advert, which is less than a week old, has over 2.5 million views and counting.
