1999 A.D.- Shopping From Home


Oh the glory of grainy educational film strips from future past. This is from "1999 A.D." in which we see what shopping will be like in the future. Watch as the wife selects things to buy on her "console", then see the reluctant frustrated husband pay the bill on his separate (but presumably equal) console. Oh, sexism. You're truly the cockroach of social inequalities. Not even the far distant year of 1999 can extinguish your power.
