“An Airport for the Jet Age”


One of my partners sent around this very cool, retro 1962 promo video for the Oakland International Airport (which, by happenstance, our firm represents . . . probably even back then) complete with 60’s promo music and a narrator whose voice takes me back to the days of Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom (remember that?).

Note: It’s a bit long at close to 20 minutes (time moved a little slower back then). Perhaps you can enjoy it with a scotch and soda while you’re waiting for your TV dinner to heat up.

It makes you wonder what our grandchildren will think of our technology today. Perhaps a bit like these vintage-inspired ads created by Sao Paulo ad agency Moma Propaganda:
