Her in 1995 Would Include an Unfortunate Character — Clippy

Feb 28 2014 - 7:10am

We're enamored with the story of Her [1], where a man played by Joaquin Phoenix [2] falls for his operating system's virtual assistant because of "her" constant companionship. But there's a darkness there that many have been imagining: what if the film, which takes place in some obscure near future, went back in time? Who and what would replace Samantha and her attractive voice? Well if it were 1995, that honor would go to what's been called one of the worst inventions of all time [3]: Clippy, the Microsoft Word assistant.

Watch as the main character, Theodore, falls in love with one googly-eyed paper clip that just really wants to help make a quality document.
