I missed putting up the silly Monday post last week due to internet problems. When I finally got back in, what did I find but this classic commercial for Centel. (Who?)

(Seriously, it's amazing how far this technology's come. Back in the day, my dad actually had an over-the-shoulder slung bag phone. Does anyone remember them?)
