Crack-smoking monkeys usher in Windows 386

Microsoft must have been confused about the mental age of the retailers expected to sell its brand spanking new Windows 386. This circa 1988 promo video is a whacking 12 minutes long - far too much for the attention span of the 8 year-olds you'd think it was aimed at.
Maybe the production team gave up half-way through because, as the blurb accompanying this video on Google says, at the seven minute mark, "the production is taken over by crack-smoking monkeys".
I couldn't have put it better myself.
