“Just slightly ahead of our time.”
Here’s a funny, so-hip-it-hurts spot for Panasonic stereos. The commercial aired in October of 1971 and features actor Edward Herrmann as “one of the country’s leading bachelors.” Herrmann shows off a variety of awesome (and now forgotten) stereo equipment such as a system that records 8-Track tapes and the “Quadrasonic” system where “each speaker plays a different part.”
Press play to be transported back in time.
