AT&T Unearths Jim Henson Robot Video From 1963
While it remains to be seen whether AT&T’s earnings will put a smile on investor’s faces, there is no question that this video will.
It’s a recently discovered little number that Jim Henson did for Ma Bell, back in 1963.
In classic Henson form, it highlights the battle between man and machine, revealing each to be quite dependent on the other. And, of course, it is endearing and adorable.
The company posted it to its Web site and to YouTube this week.
According to AT&T, Henson made the video for a seminar being given to business owners on what was then a groundbreaking topic — data communications.
As for AT&T’s earnings, they should be coming up in just a bit.
