The General Motors Motorama For 1956
From 1949 to 1961, The General Motors Motorama was an annual event where General Motors showed off its current and future offerings. Sometimes those future offerings were were off in the distant future as seen in this promotion from 1956 on what life would be like in 1976. GM seemed to go the extra mile in this semi-musical, also known as an Industrial Musical. I think it’s safe to say now, 38 years later, that GM was way off the mark.
Here’s an example of a full-blown Industrial Musical by Chevrolet.
