I’ve been enjoying Once Upon a Win lately (the cousin to FAIL Blog) and the one thing that’s lacking so far is the Commodore 64. Tonight, though, I came across something even more epic: the Commodore Christmas Demo. Dave writes:
Commodore wrote their famous Christmas Demo in 1982 to demonstrate the capabilities of their new Commodore 64 computer and the upcoming Executive 64 (SX-64) portable. It was included with the test/demo disk that shipped with every SX-64 so dealers could introduce customers to the machines’ advanced (for the time) sound and graphics. Though its character graphics and SID sound seem quaint by today’s standards, the Christmas Demo reminds many Commodore fans of the morning they woke to find a computer under their tree.
1982. I never knew of this before. Click through and watch it.
Best thing I’ve seen online all week. Hands down.
