Spam and scams are hardly anything new--at least that’s the gist of this tongue-in-cheek Snapple spot which shows us how the telegraph in the 1860s could also be the means of messaging for the con artist.

In this case, folks from the Old West are overjoyed to learn via telegraph--the email of yesteryear--that foreign royalty wants to send them millions of dollars in exchange for a social security number. Horses for everyone, cheers a supposed recipient of this fortune from afar.

Dave Laden of Hungry Man directed “Telegraph” for Deutsch LA.
