Learn About Windows 95 With The Cast Of Friends

(YouTube Link)

Who would make the ideal hosts for a promotional video about Windows 95? Why, Matthew Perry and Jennifer Aniston, stars of the wildly popular TV show Friends, of course!

The casting choice seems a bit odd, but it makes sense in terms of the show’s popularity at the time. And, although it seems like a celebrity marketing scheme gone wrong, Windows 95 went large for Microsoft so maybe they were on to something with the Friends connection.

Extra Credit: See if you can sit through the entire ten minute video without wanting to gouge out your eyes and/or jam ballpoint pens into your ears!
