In Videos: Ray Bradbury's Bizarre Prunes Commercial


Besides the book burning and social propaganda, an important part of Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 was the tiny mini packs of sunsweet pitted prunes. Oh wait, those never existed. So why does this futuristic commercial act like they did? And use Bradbury to promote the shriveled-up plums? Bradbury isn't sure either. He swears he never mentioned prunes in any of his stories. But just think: if he wanted to, he could have. Watch the wacky commercial after the jump. [via Boing Boing]
