    Remember this guy?

    I enjoyed this stuff back in UK in 80's and it made it over here IIRC. Matt Frewer was the voice and face (with loads of makeup) - plus some clever and very early puter tricks too.

    Found some sound bytes and this one was one of the best - if you recall this program at all - go listen for a chuckle.

    Probably too young Bruce - this was approx 20 or more years ago. Play the clip tho - may still find it amusing.

    Oh, and he stumped for Coke:

    I remember it. The actor, Matt Frewer, shows up occasionally. I saw Steven King's "The Stand" miniseries on tape last summer, and Frewer played a psychopathic/schizophrenic pyromaniac.

    Seems like they use to show Max on MTV back in the early days. I remember Martha Quinn was hot too. Twenty years ago? Geeez, I'm old!
