TDK Shot Andy Warhol.

(click ad) Andy Warhol apparently did a few Japanese ads in the 70s-early 80s. Here, in a TDK cassette tape ad, the ad art director from Pittsburgh's got a Ludwig marching bass drum strapped to his fragile frame next to a cast member from Cats. I wish I could translate the copy (image via). related: art appreciation with copyranter—Warhol's urine canvas vs. copyranter's urine canvas.

The creative director who made these told me Jimmy is a lovely guy, not at all greedy for money, all he wanted to do while he was here was go to Akihabara and buy some gear for his family.
