Gotta love "What the wife selects on her console will be payed for by the husband on his counterpart console."

... is this for real? ... Suspiciously accurate... suspiciously uniformly scratchy film... but then again, I could swear I've seen that actress on Mannix or Petticoat Junction... many elipses... I speak haltingly with suspicious uncertainty...

Rubrick, that was what i noticed too... huh.
I do like the three monitor setup on the husband's console.

What the..?! If it is a spoof, it's well done; full-on creepy there, man!

interesting that the used the "video screens" as basically one-way devices, only controllable by "push buttons". Then, the "electronic post office" consisted of the man writing on some kind of touchpad. All the while, there was a perfectly good typewriter/keyboard sitting right there that he completely ignored

This is for real. This was a Philco-Ford production shot in 1967.

You can see an article about this on Snopes:

This reminds me of the show Walter Cronkite did back in the 1960s called "The 21st Century". It was one of my favorite shows when I was growing up.

This is great. I don't think it's a spoof. I like how they make the whole online experience sort of creeepy. LOL
