Muni bus goes back to the future …
Ahhhhh … remember when? When, you ask? Back when we eagerly upgraded from clunky (but oh-so-awesome) Walkmans and Discmans to Apple’s shiny, sleek, magical “iPod”? Back when, well, first of all, back when we read books. And there were these dinosaurs roaming our cityscape called “bookstores.” And we could morph into Scully or Mulder with a freakin’ flappin’ flip-phone.
Those were the days, indeed.
Muni rider Jack rode a 6-Parnassus last week and his bus had ads for ALL. OF. THE. ABOVE. A true mobile museum, that.
If you had to peg a date for these ads, what would your guess be? Mine is late-2004. Like, maybe right after Bush the Younger was re-(but really for the first time)-elected*.
I saw these ads on a 6-Parnassus yesterday. Yep, in 2016. It hit me right in the feels. If you’ll excuse me, I’ll be listening to From Under The Cork Tree.
the sad thing about this is that this bus was probably out of service for 12 years
that bus was recently used for a picture shoot for bossgirl.! they put up the old ads for date correct image.
Hi Lou! Wow. Were you doing the shoot or putting up the ads or…? How’d you know? Fascinating!
