Where's My Fucking Robot?

Not only was Kid Various under the impression that he would by now have a flying car and a personal robot (roomba's don't count - get the fuck outta here!), but he was also told that he'd be living in a supercool, Tomorrowland pad like this: hat tip Boing Boing


Man, they SO lied to us!

I was checking out these illustrations yesterday and one thing struck me - all of the televisions and photograph players look so incredibly out of place. Their style is so out of date compared to the settings that they look ridiculous. I think that, as an ad campaign, it was a complete failure. Nice architecture, though.

No electric asswipes either. It was all a cruel trick.
