Cell phone ad from 1989 is a hilarious 80's memory

Posted: Updated:

In honor of the highly sought after iPhone 5's release this week, one YouTube video gives a nostalgic look back at when cellular phones were strapped to a box that resembles a roadside safety kit.

While many people under the age of 30 may only remember playing "Snake" on the Nokia 6150, those over 30 remember a time when cell phones came with luggage.

The 1989 Radio Shack commercial originally posted on MSN Now begins with a woman singing "go where you want to go."

If you think an iPhone 5 is expensive, this commercial boasts that this 1989 model costs "$799 with authorized Radio Shack carrier activation."
