Coleco Telstar Commercial

My family was lucky enough to have a Telstar. Watching the commercial still kind of gives me the same chills that I get the first time I saw it played. I couldn’t believe I could control what was on the TV. Thank you, Connecticut Leather Company.

    Awesome! That thing came out a couple years before I was born, but if I was a kid in 1976 I would totally want one of those.

    Had an Atari Video Pinball (Model C-380) myself.

    I really liked the side mounted buttons for pinball, etc.
