Obviously the mid-90s were a transitional time for rocker Eddie Van Halen, he looks virtually unrecognizable in this Peavey speaker ad from 1995. I'll take their word for it... I mean, Eddie would certainly know from 5150 Combos.
My knowledge of audio equipment begins and ends with my actual ears - it all sounds the same to me, so I have very little to say about this ad, snarky or not. Eddie looks cleaned up, the speakers look serious, and that's all I got. ha!
