Andy does Japan for TDK


1980 found TDK teaming up with Andy Warhol in these Japanese print ads. I have no idea what they're all about - and what on earth the cast of Cats has to do with Andy and his bass drum... but I'm sure everything from a brass band to a broadway show sounded great on those TDK cassette tapes. They encompassed a rainbow of sound perhaps? 

Regardless of what these are about, Andy looks appropriately avant garde and just wacky enough to keep us guessing. The 1980s were a particularly prolific time for Andy and his commercial endorsements. He even did an episode or two of Love Boat! Andy, Andy everywhere.
