What's with the Mustache Guy portrait in the background?

therandomizer said...

I think the mustache guy is a former South American dictator. It looks like they painted the portrait just after he was booted from power by the local military junta.

Gotta love those shoulder pads -- no glass ceiling for her!

sounddoc said...

my guess is the moustachioed dude is the memoriam at the end?

i'm too hurried to learn the date. i'm going to bail out and format B: instead.

Heather said...

That chick is like a female Max Headroom.

scottwad said...

I have to agree with the comments about the painting.

I hope Godzilla lightning doesn't eat my hard drive.

negrofrankenstein said...

Indeed, her suit looks like it's trying to launch her head.

atdnext said...

Jeez, if only I could just "format B:" everything in my life! Oh, how simpler this world will be. ;-)

John said...

She got pretty happy when they started talking about running fingers up and down folders. You can tell she jumps in and out of things.

Also, the portrait is of a young Saddam.

Chris Griswold said...

She looks like the woman in the "surfing the web" video. Same woman?

I like how grandma's recipes is abbreviated to old food.

Grandma, you're old!

Tipsy McStagger said...

so the worst thing that can happen to my hard disk is a godzilla type creature shows up during a lighting storm and starts snacking on my 5 & 1/4 inch floppies?

Forget about the mustache dude, what is with the chick's eyebrows? They never stop moving. They're liked coked-up caterpillars.

Also, Heather is right. The chick is Maxine Headroom.

Gil Fuser said...

She is a puppet!

Guy in painting kinda looks like a young Walt Disney

Bill M said...

She can reboot my disk operating system anytime.

JimS said...

The funny thing is I think they did the graphics on an Amiga in Deluxe Paint. XD

If I had to use DOS to use a computer, I would turn into a Luddite in a New York nanosecond.

VMOS said...

she has a really small head

also, am I alone in wanting to see more of this video?

GucciLittlePiggy said...

The guy said DOS BOOTS. Guess it's time for me to go drink 100 ounces of beer out of a glass cowboy boot.

Grandma's recipes = old food

It's comforting to know that I can always rename a file if I find that I have named it "inappropriately."

Like that time I accidentally named my Lotus 123 file "ASSBALLS.BAT"

I would do that chick 80's style, meaning it would involve lots of hair pulling and anal sex.
