Free Beer & Hot Wings: 1972 Promotional Film for Magnavox Odyssey [Video]

It’s 1972.

You’re bored as hell and there’s nothing on the three channels you get on your 19-inch console TV that weighs 600 pounds.

What’s a kid to do?

Fire up your Magnavox Odyssey, of course!

The video below is a rare 1972 promotional film for the system that was sent out to Magnavox television dealers.

And boy does it make the Odyssey look like an exciting system! Please note sarcasm. Oh, wait, since this is 2014: #sarcasm.
