The Astounding World of the Future

Someone has taken a 1950s-era newsreel film and replaced most of the original visual content with a tongue-in-cheek parody. Ironically, a lot of what the original film talked about ("robot" this and that) really has come about in the time since the film was made. As a result, the so-called "astounding world of the future" really is here, even if it doesn't seem so astounding to our jaded eyes.

HT: SF Signal for both this video and the two Han Solo, P.I. videos.
