Gee Wiz Bang #$@&!!!

Somehow the ad executives at Magnavox never realized how deeply they were undermining their own message with their print campaign for The Voice, a voice synthesizer peripheral for the Odyssey2 videogame console.

Despite the ad copy's emphasis on "demanding answers to math and spelling problems," there isn't a kid in the world who didn't look at this ad's central claim and think of a few choice words to type in an effort to upset Grandma and frighten the cat:

Gee Wiz Bang indeed.
