The future of 1976. In 1956. A musical



We've seen an awful lot of images and film footage here on PostWarClassic, but a musical? This has to be the first and since it is Sunday, we dared sharing it here with you. It was produced by General Motors for the 1956 Motorama auto show. It's called 'Key to the Future' and as of the fashion of the day, it is an almost sedatingly naive future vision set in the far-off future of 1976. Interestingly, it predicted self-driving cars through an 'electronic control strip'. The star car is the Firebird II, which ticks all the boxes for 1950s future visions with huge fin tails and jet-like openings. Enjoy this short musical and feel free to add your opinion below.

This would have to be the most hilarious thing I have seen in a long time, I think I will pass on the 'predigested food' though!
Thanks for posting it.
