Some PAC*BELL ads (and an IBM loves linux ad): http://erik.tjernlun...t/slask/reklam/

Might be worth archiving for future phone phreaks :)

I'd love to get a "reach out and touch someone" commercial for nefarious editing purposes if anyone has one...

I have a handful of AT&T newspaper and magazine ads with that slogan, I'll upload them when I get home from school.

Is advertising /anything/ but bad puns?

Also, I forgot I had this, audio from a old New England Telephone TV spot.

(Turns out these are from The Bell System Memorial)

You'd think that with 180MB of these things I would have more "Reach out and touch someone" ads, but I do not. After a little bit of googling it looks like the slogan came out in the 1980s, and most of my ads are black and white...

Edit: Oh, about advertising puns. Qwest is the worst. The most recent batch in my collection are the following:
Worth gets his money's worth with DirecTV service. You can too.
Penny Olsen saves a pretty penny on high-speed internet from Qwest. You can too.
James Moore gets more value with Qwest Wireless. Now, you can too.
