How “The Facebook” would have been marketed in 1995?
Television commercial for The Facebook from the mid-90s. It genuinely felt like a 1990s commercial without overdoing it too much. Even the video-quality, inserts of the computer monitor and the on-screen text felt very true to the era.
As you might remember from watching The Social Network, the site was originally called The Facebook, until Napster cofounder Sean Parker – played by Justin Timberlake, told Mark Zuckerberg to drop the “The” and just call it “Facebook” because it would be cleaner. Well, in 1995, we’d definitely still be calling it The Facebook.
