History Files: First Mobile Phone Add

One really interesting website,, 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.
