Finn Ross : They got some stuff right

Falah Alifandi : 1960 : I bet there will be flying cars in the future 2018: Eating tide pods challenge

Joe Anthony : seems we should have stayed bounded in the 60s

c0c0andc0 : Thats how you realize how technological advances are much easier to predict than social ones 😂

80sruler : Mother spends father pays - this never changes 🤬

Robert Howard : The predictions were quite good from a technological point of view, the casual sexism was sort of funny (in an ironic way, as they made all these predictions of the future, but assumed that women would still be housewives and their husbands would earn the money and approve purchases)

jakep1979 : The car at the beginning looks like "The Homer".

cochiselol1232 : Mr Brown and I got along famously...

Gianni Ian Gianan : Most of their computers are all in our smartphones lmao

Bob Silver : One thing about the 60's, some of the coolest car were made...GTO Chevelle Cuda Roadrunner Firebird 442 Cutlass Lemans GS Charger Challenger Mustang Nova LeMans Tempest etc etc

Justin Esposito : Some say he is still counting for lunch

Imperial Guard #28 : Heck, The Jetsons cartoon series in the 60s predicted we'd have video chat. We were off to such a good start. What happened?

KeySwordArt : Illuminati Confirmed

Richard Poynton : Further to my first comment. They used quite a bit of imagination for this, but missed some of the more obvious changes to come. For instance, he was looking at his bank details on his computer which showed him a picture of a hand written sheet. Banks are still using humans to ‘compute’ the figures, not a spreadsheet programme. Also, the underlying sexism is still there. The ‘little woman’ is still in the kitchen. She might not be slaving over an oven, but she’s still in the kitchen preparing food - so equality of the sexes hadn’t been postulated - that’s quite a glaring error to our modern eyes, but was totally invisible to people in the 1960s, apparently. It makes you wonder how parochial and primitive some of our present day ideas which are so prevalent and widely accepted in our society will appear in 60 years.

ModelosPR : Narrator: "And here we see billy, hiding from his parents, watching shota manga on his mobile device."

Richard Poynton : Quite prescient

Kaynos : Fake news ;p

Joshua Traffanstedt : Well just think.. This is the generation that put man on the moon. If we'd have stayed with the same way of thinking, there's no telling what life would be like now.

Eddie Suarez : I regret not going to the army back in 2010

Massive Branflake : What the wife buys will be paid for on by the husband... I guess they didn’t predict equality then

thaddeus mcgrath : The 1967 Idea of "The Home of 1999" had a flying type car parked on the beach and Jr. studying by computer correct but why didn't they not think of we would be having Tide Pod challenges and safe places for snow flakes to hide?

Willie Scheiderer : My Pc has never made dinner for me..

G1 Smokescreen : I lived the 90s, & for the life of me, don't remember having ANYTHING like all! lol

MMMike : These predictions weren't even bad. Most of them were quite accurate.

JustLikeMyself : And then there is this "history" channel talking about aliens and nuclear power plants that wiped the aztecs out. respect+

Emilia Chorosz : LOL wasn’t smart house on Disney channel made around 1999?. Hahaha

Fábio Rodrigues : 10 yrs later Alien came out with a much closer aproach , women and men working together, AI, pets, and computers without being a scan of an image but a electronic dislplay

mensa517 : not far off as they used us as an unwilling focus group====as you can see everything is/was pre-planned only to be rolled out decades later per their agenda

Sarah Gray : We sure don't have cars like that one...and why is Mom still the one who has to make dinner?
