History Files: First Mobile Phone Add

One really interesting website, mobile-spots.com, gives everybody the possibility to check out the first Celtel commercial ever made. The advertisement dates from 1989 and features Motorola DynaTAC 8000X as the main actor of a series of excessively romantic scenes.

The huge handset you see in the clip is not only the first ever advertised cell phone, but also the first one approved by FCC, 5 years earlier than it appeared in this commercial. The website has several other interesting mobile-related ads that have reached only specific markets until now, which also adds the joy of discovering.
