“There is nothing wrong with your computer. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. We will tell you what a comfortable computer user experience is. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can reload your web pages whenever we want. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to the crystal clarity of stunning display. We can obsolete your hardware with a new software upgrade. For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. Don’t worry about getting anything done at work, just be amazed by our amazing awesomeness. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your computer. You are about to participate in a great adventure. The unlocking of your wallet and absorption of your dwindling money supply while you increasingly become addicted to our increasingly beautiful, but unreliable products. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to — The Outer Limits of Apple OS X and iOS. Don’t Think Different any more, just think like us since we’ve become filthy rich making Apple iPhones that you can use while you walk aimlessly into traffic while you text your friends.”

Opening sequence from the original broadcast of The Outer Limits, 1961.
