Prunes of the Future


Another must watch. Via Boing Boing and Serious Eats, here’s an old television commercial for Sunsweet Prunes starring none other than Los Angeles’ own Sci-lebrity, Ray Bradbury. According to Bradbury (or, at least, the prune announcer) by 2001 we were all supposed to get around via “people tubes” (not so much), have wall-to-wall TVs (got that one right), and eat Sunsweet prunes in little individual packages (yep, except now they’re “dried plums”). Video after the Jump.
