Wow, I had no idea there was actually a commercial made for these. When I delivered the Detroit News back in 1983 I got one of these as a “prize” for meeting some goal on my route.
It was terrible as I think it was one size fits all and when you throw the brick of a walkman in the inside pocket it made you look like you spilled your guts inside the jacket.
Wow, thanks Joel. I will now have nightmares.
Awesome. I think they were exaggerating when they said it’s currently sweeping the nation…
I LOVE the petty attempt at breakdancing in the middle of the commercial LOL.
Holy crabapples! I have one of those.
I had no idea the speakers were waterproof, that’s good to know, know I can wear it everyday without worry.
It’s kinda nice if you’re walking down a very quiet street, but it’s too soft to hear if there’s any background noise (a passing car will almost completely drown it out).
And they paired the breakdancing with the announcer saying “and just hanging around”

The guy in the background looks like he’s just wandered into shot by mistake…
