Video: “The Space” Japanese Technics Commercial

This disco-thumping, Centurion-filled commercial from the ’80s is selling a hi-fi system known as “The Space,” which as far as I can tell was so-dubbed because it could be easily stacked. Or maybe they were capitalizing on a strong Battlestar Galactica trend of which I was unaware.

(Is there a good way to do those “laser” graphics these days besides just compositing layers over video in AfterEffects or something? Boing Boing TV needs more panning synths and glowing grids.)
