Kiki Stockhammer could push anything properly.

What I want to know is if the singer chick only had one line then why did she need sheet music?

I really like these old clips. I liked that old commodore commercial collection that was online as well! It really was a different time back then, and seeing the old commercials is truly a blast from the past. Doesn't it give you some kind of warm nostalgic feeling?

In case she forgot the lyric???

Ohhh that is bad, I'm glad I was too young to remember any of the adverts. Mind you aren't most computer adverts terrible. Mac have snazzed them up but there is this air of pretentiousness about them - they are like the jazz of the computer world

I notice that some of the same images that are in that 15 minute demo also appear in the "Only Amiga" commercial that started out this thread,
