Found: 1997 Intel Pentium II Mascot Keychains

Remember those guys? They were Intel‘s mascots for the campaign surrounding the Pentium II processor, back in 1997. Why I just found four of them, as keychains, in my kids playroom in 2011, I’m not entirely sure (oldest was born in 1999)…

Now, for a some poking fun, there is a bit of an imagery timeline about those suits involving Apple and Intel. See the videos embedded below for what I mean.

 


Intel, 1997:


Apple, 1997:

And to not finish just yet, then there was also the controversy about the latter with The Postal Service‘s “Such Great Heights” video. :p
