This shows my age!

Was perusing YouTube as you do and watching some old Maiden Vids stumbled aross this. Absolute classic and what a geezer Daley Thompson was.
If you do remember this then you must be proper old like me.

Feck it.... By the time that ad had been on, I had left school, had two jobs, been in the army, got married and had two kids..... now going outside to cry...

When I was young we had a new type of computer called an abacus... and it didn't need battey power.... So was obviously better than your ZX 80/81's Spectrums and BBC micros!

And Brumbrum always cheated on Jack Nicholas golf... On the Comodore 64
