The Remote Control, Circa 1961

I think I might have posted this on TV Squad a while back. It's a promotional video from the early 60s for an RCA remote control. The star looks like it was made at the school one of the ad exec's kids attended. This was back when TVs actually had a special drawer for your remote.

We didn't get an RCA until later, but when I was a kid we did have a big Magnavox that was like a piece of furniture, all wood with a bunch of cubby holes and doors. I loved that thing.
