Learn About Windows 95 with Jennifer Aniston and Matthew Perry

By Jason Fitzpatrick on February 27th, 2012

In this mid-1990s promotional film you’ll be treated to a first hand tour of Windows 95 by none other than a partial cast of the show Friends.

Although we’re sure this video answered a lot of questions for people at the time of its release, it raises quite a few for us in the present. How much money did it take to pull two of the most popular television stars of the day into this silly marketing film? Did they pay to use that Seinfeld’esque back beat in the beginning? Was there really a computer dark ages so dark that people needed to be told how to open and close a file (and that the file didn’t actually vanish)?
