Trust VCRs built by Hitachi

This commercial from Canada is pretty typical of tech related advertising from the mid-eighties. My favorite part of though and I think the one worth rewatching is the shot of the VCR head. You get this sparkling piece of tech, beautifully filmed and then they add a nice bit of animation to illustrate how it works. It is just wonderful.
