Do not eat before watching this ...

And here is the backstory:

IBM produced a sales training package for the PCjr in October 1983. The package consisted of two booklets, two diskettes, and an optional video tape. The video above is the contents of the video tape.

(Keep in mind that in 1983 a VCR was still pretty much a luxury.)

An interesting thing to note is the absence of the PCjr Color Monitor. The standard CGA monitor is used here, as it is in other early PCjr advertising. I suspect the PCjr monitor was not available in time for the early advertising, which is why it is not featured in any of the early advertising.

Wait, nevermind. That's probably a Flash issue I'm seeing, considering it does the same thing while it's paused.
