i heard you on the wireless back in ’52…make that ’81

August 1 marked the 35th anniversary of MTV (don’t you feel old just reading that?) and with it came the launch of MTV Classic, which brought back many familiar faces to our screens. the decision to add a new channel came about due in part to this momentous occasion, but also to draw back viewers who might have tuned out when the network shifted its format from music and entertainment to reality television.

the wave of nostalgia is setting in not only for MTV, but also for the early days of the Internet (we can thank all the ridiculous memes about dial-up for that)…and there’s no better way to enjoy the two together than this video from 1995 explaining the wonders of the Internet (celebrity cameos included, annoying dial-up tone need not apply)!
