LinkedIn has teamed up with FedEx in this humorous promo in order to help people learn how they can use the social media tool to help their small business succeed.

The Linkedin and FedEx promo is inspired by the cheesy retro how-to videos that were well-known in the 1980's and goes step-by-step on how to register your small business on LinkedIn. Combining a period where computers were just being discovered with contemporary society's fixation on social media is a hilarious juxtaposition that makes this creative promo a whole lot of fun.
