TDK commercial

I think Sony cassette tapes may have been best, but TDK were pretty good. No to Hanimex cassette tape. Somewhere in the depths of my wardrobe I have a Hanimex cassette tape with a recording from the radio of T Rex. the band, not the dinosaur. I am not quite that old.

This was the Aussie tv ad for TDK tapes. Pretty good ad, sexist as it was.



I wasted time looking at the South African TDK ad. It was the same as the Aussie ad.

Then I came across this one and I remember it. It was classic Japanese but shown in Australia. Japanese trains do have round strap hangers on trains for non round hands.



The lass is attractive and loses herself in her recorded music, presumably on a TDK tape. Getting lost in your music on a Japanese train surrounded by salary men could be a little unwise, from what I have heard.

  1. Despite being around in the 80s and a fan of TDK I can't remember either of these.
    Getting lost in your music on our public transport can be an iffy proposition too.

    1. EC, yes re music on public transport. I see so many people miss hearing an approaching tram because they are lost in the phones with earpieces in, or miss their stop to get off because they are so busy with their phones. Yes, I have done it myself.

  2. Interesting to note that back then it was magical using such technology.

  3. Ah the walkman at her side. Like I said, I still have one somewhere. A few cassettes too.

    1. Strayer, I bet your Walkman has flat batteries but hopefully they haven't leaked.

  4. What the heck are those earphones? They look like a pair of radios glued onto an Alice band.

    1. Cro, what a great description. I think the actual cassette player is part of the headphones.

    1. Gosia, while I had forgotten about the second ad, it is my favourite.

  6. I'm on the browser that won't play videos and I'm too lazy to switch, but i vaguely remember TDK ads. We used TDK for video recording too and Sony, then when recordable blank DVD discs were available, again it was TDK and Sony. Very rarely we used a cheaper brand.

  8. Was that woman on the Japanese train having an orgasm? Either that or she's just eaten a cream bun.

  9. I like music when alone or dancing but on trains I like to watch people does that make me odd.
