Akai, for the most Avant Garde fans of of Stereo Equipment

I find this late seventies commercial for Akai stereo equipment to be confusing and indulgent. So naturally it is now my favorite thing in the world. It feels like they had a few actors show up and they told them to act artsy. This sort of behavior seemed to peak in the eighties, but for my money, the stuff they did in the seventies was much better.

If you wondering if my favorite member of the “Akai Stereo Players” is, its laser hand mirror guy.
