Gen-X Japanese Commercials!

More embedded intensiveness than you can ever hope to imagine!


Oh Thank Heaven!

Come On In, Coke!

The early years of the Terebi Gamu!

TV's & VCR's (but no cable, apparently they were fine with the ol' rabbit ears but hell, they got STEREO far earlier than we did)

A little too much overload, let's cool off with some POCARI SWEAT or a fancy NESCAFE to wash all that down!

A craft now lost to the ages, photography!

And now, misc. crap!

That Casio Baseball CM, what the heck? That's like having Abbott and Costello doing "Who's on first?" to sell Atari 2600 Baseball carts. A complete disconnect.

Although a calculator that had a baseball game in it would've been cool back in high school.

Would be. I had to put a little more effort into this to find some more gems to add here. Kinda interesting they introduced stereo TV's over there so early though. Seemed like they didn't quite catch on in the US until the mid 80's.
