It’s sometimes difficult to differentiate between actual 1940′s vintage video and parody of the classic era. In this video published by , the narrator’s voice over is so stereotypical, and the ‘exercise’ machines are so ridiculous, it’s almost hard to imagine that this was a real segment on women’s physical health.

The end of the 1980′s was when home computing and networking was still in its infant stage. That was when email was still called ‘electronic-mail.’ It was also a time when ‘computer virus’ was still a very new and scary thing.

And the media took full advantage of that. This vintage news report from 1988 reports about a computer virus that infected MIT’s network is so overly dramatic and cheesy, it’s comical in today’s world.
