Another month is here and we get another chance to dip into the subject of boxers being involved in commercials and adverts. As people familiar with this series will know, this isn't something to take too seriously but is a bit of fun and a chance to see fighters in some interesting roles outside of the ring.
Guts Ishimatsu - Ricoh Printer
A show on to kick off with but one featuring a favourite of this series, former Lightweight world champion Guts Ishimatsu. Ishimatsu was involved numerous adverts, having a long post-boxing career as an actor and talent, and one of his many assignments was Ricoh Printers, featuring in two Ricoh Printer adverts. This one sees Ishimatsu walking in to an office with a before some confused looking colleagues. We're sure the advert makes sense to those able to speak Japanese but to us, it's just amusing to see Ishimatsu, once again, showing brilliant presence on screen and being involved in a humourus role.
Tomomi Takano - Christian & Co
Another regular in this series is female fighter Tomomi Takano, who had the natural aura to draw eyes and attention to anything she was promoting. That's seen here in an advert for Christian and Co. The advert is very modern, very basic and a bit boring if we're being honest, yet it's almost impossible to look away from Takano who really does act as the main factor in an overly artsy commercial. This is very style over substance, and is supposedly the "simple version" of the advert, suggesting there is a more complex version out there, despite us not yet coming across it.
Manny Pacquiao - Anta
Another boxer who has been in numerous commercials over the years is Filipino sensation Manny Pacquiao, who has put his face to pretty much everything and anything. Here is a commercial he filmed for Anta Sports Products entitled "I am a Fighter". The entire video focuses more on Pacquiao and his career than the product he's selling, which is a bit strange. In fact almost the entire advert is based on Pacquiao with Anta barely getting an actual mention in the video. Very odd for the brand awareness if we're being honest.
Gennady Golovkin - GGG Energy Drink
Kazakh boxer Gennady Golovkin is undeniably the greatest professional boxer from Kazakhstan so far. He's also the only one to have an energy drink emblazoned with his his name, or rather his initials. Sadly the advert here is a very weird one being mostly training with the energy drink coming at the very end of the video. We understand the idea behind it, with the energy drink fuelling Golovkin's great training, but it very much feels like a missed opportunity and it would have made more sense to push the product at the start of the video, or during the middle of it, rather than flash it at the end of the advert for a few seconds.
Katsunari Takayama - BODYMAKER
We suspect long term fans of Japanese boxing will remember the "Bodymaker Colosseum", and that was a deal where sports where company Bodymaker bought the naming rights for the Osaka Prefectural Gymansium for a number of years. Bodymaker also had a number of notable athletes promoting their clothing, such as Katsunari Takayama, who featured in a number of commercials for them. They included this very basic one of him sprinting in their clothing as part of one of his work outs. Again a very simple advert, but one where we at least see the brand's logo during the advert as well as at the end. We can at least understand what Bodymaker are here, even if the advert isn't the most artistic one out there.
Back in August 2020 we did one of our weekly "10 facts you probably didn't know about..." articles about former Japanese Flyweight Seisaku Saito. The former fighter, turned actor, comedian and entertainer, was an enigmatic individual who ended up featuring in a series of adverts after his boxing career. We've decided to put a bunch of those together in this edition of "5 times Asian boxers have appeared in commercials!"
One thing to note before we go any further is that after Seisaku Saito retired from boxing he did go by the stage name Tako Hachiro, and became a full time actor. We really don't know how many adverts he was in, but we've included just 5 below, if we stumble on more in the future we will include them in a future article in this series.
Seisaku Saito - Ace Cook Ramen Noodles
We begin this with a really basic Yaki Soba noodle advert for a company called Ace Cook. The advert looks very much late 1970's/early 1980's. Saito is wearing an awful salmon coloured blazer and is in front of a very dull background. Not really sure about this advert at all, but it did make us hungry the first time we watched it, then again we're usually hungry when we see noodles!... Which has actually made this entire article very hunger inducing
Seisaku Saito - Suntory Canned Gin
Ok so what do we want with our noodles? Well how about some canned Gin. The advert sees Saito pulling a woman in a Rickshaw before the two enjoy some Suntory Canned Gin. This is again a rather basic advert, but we do wonder who though giving Saito the attire he's in was funny....because we kinda thing Saito's attire here is more memorable than the product they are drinking!
Seisaku Saito - Kintori Mosquito Repellent
So if we take our noodles and gin outside, and yes drinking in public is allowed in Japan for those wondering, we might have ourselves some flying buggers bothering us. Those damn Mosquito's need keeping away, and to do that we're going to use this! The Kintori Mosquito Repellent! In regards to adverts this is the weirdest one that Saito is in, with Saito playing one of two...crabs. This is short, surreal and weird to say the least!
Seisaku Saito - Kishifort Camera Store
Whilst we're enjoying our day out, and have rid ourselves of those damn Mosquito's, we should take some photographs of our day! Well that's great as Saito was in an advert for a camera store in, or around 1985. This is another rather weird one with Saito playing a musical instrument on the beach. The advert does little to sell the cameras or camera store and sadly turned rather weird when we move from the advert to real life. For those unaware Saito actually drowned in 1985, making this a rather weird one to watch back.
Seisaku Saito - Matsuda Foods Baby Star Cup Ramen
We started this with a food advert and we'll end it with a food one as Saito also advertised a cup Ramen product. The advert here really is one we simply don't get, though in fairness it could be lost in translation. We feel it would have made more sense to see someone eating the product, than sitting in a car with dehydrated noodle cups, similar to Pot Noodles for our UK viewers.
So Christmas is just a few days away and sadly we couldn't find many really Christmas themed adverts. Despite that we have put together one final collection of commercials featuring boxers before the year is over. This is another eclectic collection of adverts and again shows off some of the wild and whacky commercials featuring boxers from Asia.
Guts Ishimatsu - Nissin Salad Oil
It's December, we love Christmas, so we had to include at least one advert with snow! And of course we also need to include a commercial with Guts Ishimatsu involved. This one, from 1984, takes a snow setting to sell, we believe, a Nissin Salad Oil set. Yeah the world is crazy and the adverts Guts Ishimatsu was in were pretty random with this being among the most random and weird.
Manny Pacquiao - McDonald's
We'll stick with food based adverts as we return to another series regular thanks to Manny Pacquiao in an advert for McDonald's. This is actually one of the few times we see Manny acting in an advert, rather than being shoe horned in as a famous face or doing some sort of a work out, and it works well. He appears to be having fun and enjoying the products, and McDonalds have got themselves a memorable advert. It's fun and innocent and a little bit cheeky, with an edit to the usual McDonald's jingle at the end.
Yoko Gushiken - Liquid Muhi
Thinking about last minute gifts for your loved ones this Christmas? Then why not get some Liquid Muhi. They'll not be offended, surely? Here we get a really weird adverty between two men in a boxing ring trying to get each other with Liquid Muhi, which is an anti itch product. For those who missed Yoko Gushiken's involvement on their first watch he's one of the commentators for this...very odd advert. From what we understand this was from 2003 and is clearly one of the most confusing product adverts we've seen in this series.
Naoya Inoue - Workport
Okay, so a new year is coming up and you want to figure out what to do to have a new you? A new job maybe? Well here's Naoya Inoue in a commercial for Workport Co. Ltd, a Japanese company that's involved in the employment industry, helping people change their careers. We're just as confused as everyone here. It's one that is clearly lost in translation for non-Japanese speakers, but still an interesting advert that was released in 2019 and showed that Inoue's profile outside of the sport is growing.
Gennady Golovkin - Nike Air Jordan's
Okay, so you actually do need to get someone a gift, and you need to get them something good. Well we have the perfect product for you, Nike Air Jordan's. That's what was supposed to be getting promoted here in an advert featuring Gennady Golovkin and his then trainer Abel Sanchez. In reality the advert just mocks the meat controversy that Saul "Canelo" Alvarez was in. Yeah the advert really does miss the product, but it's a rather funny one for the circumstance. There are so many other things that the team behind this could have done to sell the product, rather than essentially getting in the middle of a spat, but we suspect the advert got more attention due to the barbs at Canelo.
Another month is here and we get another chance to look at some commercials featuring boxers from Asia. This time around we have two adverts featuring Filipino fighters, 3 with Japanese fighters, two of our series regulars are on show again we really do look at some very different products!
Nonito Donaire - Summit Water
Whilst it appears we include a Manny Pacquaio commercial in every one of these he's not the only marketable Filipino from recent years and here's another top Filipino in advert, as we look at a commercial for Summit water featuring Nonito Donaire. The advert is a simple one, but features both the fighter, and water and sells the product. A pretty basic but one that actually makes sense! That's a real rarity in this series!
Guts Ishimatsu - Social Insurance Agency
A regular to this series is Guts Ishimatsu who, lets be honest, made a career out of these TV spots after his in ring career ended. Here is a very odd one for what we believe is a 1987 commercial for the Social Insurance Agency in Japan. British fans from the 1970's and 1980's might remember Mr Benn and it appears that Guts may have been looking to do a live action Mr Benn trying on clothing related to different jobs. It's a silly advert but as with many that Guts was in it's more memorable than it has any right to be.
Koki and Tomoki Kameda - "I want to Hug You"
A bit of an oddity here as two of the Kameda brothers, Koki and Tomoki, team up to help promote a musical single from Arashi Moritomo. The single, for whatever reason, had a 15 second commercial released in 2010 featuring the two brothers listening to the song. We're really not sure whether there was any need at all for the fighters to be featured here, but it does make it an oddity. We're really not sure if this helped the success of the song or not, but it did reach #13 in the Oricon charts.
Miyo Yoshida - Areti
In 2019 the then WBO female Super Flyweight champion Miyo Yoshida recorded several adverts for cosmetics company Areti, along with model GIMICO. One of them was dubbed the "Mama, Daughter, beautiful" advert. This advert focuses on Yoshida and Gimico using certain products to. It's perhaps not the most amazing advert, but it does seem like Yoshida is a natural on camera as is Yoshida's young daughter who makes a cameo in the final seconds. The advert shows off a range of products and is a simple but effective one.
Manny Pacquiao - Vitwater
We started this months commercials with an advert featuring a Filipino fighter promoting a brand of bottled of water, and we'll end it with one as well as we focus on Filipino icon Manny Pacquiao and his iconic Vitwater advert. Affectionately known as the "You know?" advert. The advert is a water advert, but is a silly one with the over-use of the phrase "You know" giving the whole thing a rather humour touch. For a bottled water advert this is actually a really good one and one that will stick in the mind a bit more than most....you know.
We're back again with the latest in our look at commercials featuring Asian boxers and we again have a random selection ranging from food products to female clothing to a mobile phone operator, with a talking dog!
Guts Ishimatsu - Softbank
We need to start this by stating that we love Guts Ishimatsu and think adverts with him are consistently good. This one however is a little bit different to most with him involved. You won't see Guts here, but he is the man behind the talking dog! Kai, the dog in question, played the role of Otosan the star of a series of adverts for Japanese Mobile phone operator Softbank. The character, known as "Otosan", had various people doing the voice, including the legendary former Japanese boxer. The adverts were hugely popular with Japanese audiences saw the dog becoming a genuine star.
Yoko Gushiken - SEC
After hearing one of the most recognisable voices in Japanese boxing in one advert we now go to the most recognisable haircut in the country as we feature a commercial with Yoko Gushiken. The afro sporting Light Flyweight legend was in a number of adverts including this one for SEC, an elevator company in Japan. The advert was released in 2014 and is a nice bright, colourful one that is pretty memorable. A solid advert even if Gushiken's role in it is rather minor.
Daisuke Naito - Wakasaimo Honpo
In 2009 Japanese Flyweight Daisuke Naito was the WBC world champion and had seen his profile hitting massive heights thanks to his work with TBS and his 2007 win over Daiki Kameda. Due to his popularity he featured in a number of adverts, including this one for confectionery company Wakasaimo Honpo. The advert is one of the rare ones that used a then active professional boxer to do more than just have them boxing, and instead used Naito's popularity outside of the sport to help enhance the products reach and profile.
Manny Pacquiao - Wonderful Pistachios
Filipino star Manny Pacquiao has been in an incredible amount of adverts. Some are good, some are awful, Some are memorable, and some are just fun. This one is one of the more fun and memorable ones as we see Pacquiao busting a speed ball and sending Pistachio nuts everywhere. This is simple but very effective and we can only assume looked awesome if there was ever a 3-D version released, with the nuts firing at your face. One of the more interesting adverts with the "Pacman" involved.
Tomomi Takano - Christian Skinny
We started with a series regular and we'll end with another as we finish up with Japanese female star Tomomi Takano advertising for Christian Skinny, from Christian Co, which Takano has done a number of adverts for. The advert was part of a promotional where a discount was applied for buying several units. The advert does nothing special, though we do like the jingle. Simple but effective. Although simple the advert works to the strengths of the performance, with Takano having a great figure and long legs to really make the product look great here.
Another month is upon us and another chance to look at some of the wonderful, wacky and weird adverts featuring Asian boxers! Today we look at an advert for insoles, a drink, some hair care products and some cosmetics. Once again we see that boxers can turn up in a very diverse set of commercials.
Guts Ishimatsu - Morito insoles
We kick off with a truly bizarre one featuring one of this series' favourites Gut Ishimatsu. The commercial sees Ishimatsu and a man in a bear suit, yeah we're lost already, promoting some insoles from a company called Morito. The advert, from 1986, seems weird to say the least, but it didn't cripple the company who are still around to this day and you can actually order various Morito insoles around the globe now. Still very odd advert and one that leaves us more and more confused as to what Guts' agent was doing in the mid 1980's!
Tomomi Takano - Suuuuper Wooooman
One of the few female boxers who has managed to maintain a strong base in advertising is model come boxer Tomomi Takano. Whilst Takano might not be a world class boxer she has sensational looks which has made her very marketable. Here she is in an advert for the drink Suuuuper Wooooman. The advert is a simple one, with mostly Takano doing some training, but the product does get spoken about and seen being drank which at least helps a lot more than some other adverts we've included. Still not a great commercial but better than many featuring fighters.
Shinji Takehara - Kamatori Housing Co.
In a rather sweet commercial for Kamatori we see former WBA Middleweight champion Shinji Takehara not just running through a neighbourhood but also, seemingly, speaking at a school. The sense of togetherness and being part of something bigger works well here and those in charge of the advert have used Takehara's ability to just be a decent person really well. Maybe not the most amazing or best of adverts but it's nice to see a boxer used in an advert that just has a strong sense of sweetness like this one.
Manny Pacquiao - Head and Shoulders
In 2010 Head and Shoulders did a commercial with Manny Pacquiao where, as we often see with Pacquiao commercials, they essentially inserted him into a role that anyone could have taken, in an effort to just have the brand associated with him. The advert lacks the charm that some other Pacquiao commercial's have and it misses the mark, but given the amount of commercial's Pacquiao was in there was always going to be some stinkers. This is one of the worst, and really does feel like Pacquiao was shoe-horned in to appeal to the Filipino market.
Yuko Kuroki - Amin Cosmetics
Last month we included Yuko Kuroki's confusing commercial for Autobacs, which really left us scratching out heads. With that in mind we felt it fair to include a much better one with Kuroki this time around. Here is her advert for Amin Cosmetics. It's a much smarter advert than the autobacs on, giving a lot of different images, and proving that being pretty doesn't mean you can't be a boxer, and being a boxing shouldn't prevent you from caring about how you look. This makes a lot more sense than the Autobacs one.
When we first started doing this "5 times Asian boxers have appeared in commercials!" series we expected to have 5 or 6 articles in the series and that was that. Instead however we've managed to find a lot, lot more adverts than expected and we'll be continuing the series right through the year and in to 2021, just based on what we have in the locker already. With that said, here are another 5 commercials featuring Asian boxers.
Manny Pacquiao - San Miguel
One of the few men who we could do a special one of these features about is Manny Pacquiao. The Filipino icon is in so many commercials and they are pretty wide ranging in what they're about. One of the most constant subjects for his commercials is alcoholic beverages. Here he features alongside Jet Li in an advert for San Miguel. The advert is certainly not one where Manny does much, but Jet Li's involvement is pretty cool. A decent advert but one where Manny seems to have been massively under-utilised and put there just because he's Manny.
Guts Ishimatsu - Aviva
Another man who could have filled up his own feature in these types of articles is Guts Ishimatsu, who is a regular in these articles. Here we have one of his more mundane and dull efforts as he tries to promote Aviva. From what we understand these were shown in, or around, the year 2000 and this one is certainly not one of his better efforts. Then again the best commercials with him are really good and this was more of short promotional thing than anything too memorable.
Yoko Gushiken - Mitsubishi Colour TV's
Another Japanese legend who was in a lot of commercials was Yoko Gushiken. Here's his very advert for Mitsubishi colour TV's from around 1980. The advert features colour video of Gushiken boxing with a character from Ashita No Joe, or "Tomorrow's Joe" a popular Japanese boxing anime. This is a rare time where we would have liked a longer commercial, but it does well to sell the product. Given that colour TV's are now pretty much every where we suspect this advert was much more impactful back when it was shown, but the technological advances in 40 years do show.
Yuko Kuroki - Autobacs
One thing that is quite rare, though there are examples of it, are female boxers being featured in commercials. Here we have former female world champion Yuko Kuroki strangely being used in an advert for Autobacs tyres. That's right the cute, and adorable Kuroki was used to try and sell car tyres in what may go down as one of the most confusing and confounding ideas. Not only was she used to sell tyres but we legitimately don't understand how her actions have anything to do with the product. Crazy and almost disconnected advertising here folks...at least the jingle is good!
Gennady Golovkin - Apple Watch
To finish this months look at commercial's we have another short one, with Gennady Golovkin featuring in an advert for Apple Watch. The advert is little more Golovkin training and showing off the heart beat monitor of the watch. Yeah this is not an advert that screams "Apple Watches are amazing". Then again at least it makes a lot more sense that the Yuko Kuroki advert.
We're back again with more commercial's featuring boxers. This time is maybe the most eclectic selection so far, featuring a herbal product, a Wonderboy promoting a banking product, a Monster in his underwear and a legendary along with a monkey. Yes the world is a strange place and commercials are real oddities.
Manny Pacquiao - Tolak Angin
We kick off this months look at commercials featuring Asian boxer's by returning to the face of Asian boxing, Manny Pacquiao. Here Pacquiao is promoting a herbal supplement Tolak Angin. The product is best known for being available in Indonesia, but has spread around the globe and could be purchased in the UK from Amazon at one point. The commercial is a really basic one, but one that sadly left us wondering what on earth the product is...needing us to research it. For an advert appealing to a market who knew what the product was this is great, but those who didn't know would just be confused...as we were.
Rex Tso - Standard Chartered Balance Transfer Loan
From one of the most marketable men in Asian boxing to another, with Hong Kong star Rex Tso advertising Standard Chartered Balance Transfer Loans. Yeah we were completely lost by that idea too. The commercial does little to connect Tso to the product and appears to be more of a training video until the final seconds when we see the product details on the bottom of the screen. Yeah this is just a terrible mess of a commercial. Really bizarre.
Ryota Murata - Under Armour
Japanese star Ryota Murata is another very marketable fighter and someone who has often found himself as a face of products in Japan. One of his most notable contracts has been with sportswear company Under Armour with this being one of the many commercials for the company he has featured in. Give the previous two adverts this month at least we know what he's promoting, which is a huge improvement from the Rex Tso advert. Still it's a bit boring and little more than a training video.
Naoya Inoue - Body Wild Airz
We stay in Japan as we feature Naoya Inoue walking around in his underpants! Yup this one sees the Monster advertising some underwear in what is a short but interesting advert that clearly makes it obvious what he's advertising. An advert making the product clear seems a novel here, but it's good to see Bodywild using one of the faces of Japanese boxing to sell their product, rather than just...featuring him training.
Guts Ishimatsu - ENEOS
One of the few men who always seems to be in humorous and entertaining adverts is the legendary Guts Ishimatsu. He's in another here for ENEOS, who are an oil and energy company. We'll admit we're not totally sure on what the commercial is selling us, though it appears to be some kind of loyalty card, but in reality that hardly matters, seeing the interactions here between Ishimatsu and the Monkey is brilliant. We suspect, although we could be wrong, that part of the advert is a call back to a previous Ishimatsu advert, for Ape Escape, but even if that's not the case this is still a funny advert and much more memorable than other adverts we tend to see.
We're in the middle of another month and once again it's time to look at some commercials featuring boxers from Asia!
Rex Tso - "Heavy Hammer Grilled Iron Plate"
Hong Kong fighter Rex Tso was, at one point, among the the nation's biggest sports stars and the marketing departments of various companies knew it. As a result Tso featured in a number of adverts, one of which was this one, which we believe was for Cafe De Coral Hong Kong and their "Heavy Hammer Grilled Iron Plate", which appears to be a glorified mixed grill. According to the company the product features steak, pork, seafood sticks, sausages and soup. Not the best advert or the most interesting, but still at least it's advertising a good looking product!
Daigo Higa - "JTA"
Another rather notable name modern day name featured in a recent commercial was Daigo Higa, who stared in an advert for JTA Corporate. The advert is a very simple one focusing more on Higa than the actual company the adverts trying to promote. Supposed the advert is for Japan Transocean Air and Japan Airlines but in the end the company only really gets mentioned at the very end of the commercial. It's nice to see Higa looking happy but as a promotional video. Yeah this ain't good.
Bernabe Concepcion - "Johnson and Johnson"
It's fair to say that Bernabe Concepcion isn't the most well known fighter out there, but it's still interesting to note that he was in this very peculiar advert for Johnson and Johnson. We're not sure if Concepcion was more famous in the Philippines than we were lead to presume but it's clear they have actively selected the fighter. As for the advert it's self, it's a sweet caring one, and appeals to those who see Johnson and Johnson as a key brand of families. Odd, sure. Still a notable advert and something that we suspect few have seen.
Guts Ishimatsu - "Asahi Shinbun Digital"
There are very few fighters in as many commercials as Guts Ishimatsu. Part of that is the remarkable career change that Guts has made, going from world class boxer to professional actor. With that in mind he's in a lot of adverts, and they are pretty wide ranging in terms of products that he's affiliated with. One such advert is for the digital edition of the Asahi Shinbun. Essentially this is an advert for the online version of a Japanese newspaper...with Guts' natural charm shining through throughout.
Chris John - "Kuku Bima Ener-G!"
To end this we go to Indonesia for an energy drink advert featuring Indonesian boxing great Chris John alongside spiritual guardian Mbah Marijan. The advert was filmed close to Mount Merapi, which sadly erupted in 2010 killing Marijan. The advert seems to show John running from the volcano with thanks to the energy drunk, which shows off the various flavours of the drink. For those curious the Kuku Bima energy drinks come as powder, which needs dissolving in water.
Another month and another chance to see some adverts featuring fighters from Asia. This time we include a sportswear advert, two game adverts, a commercial for a TV service and a vehicle.
Yup we're all over the place this month!
Ryota Murata - Under Armour
Starting with the bright lights of Las Vegas we see Ryota Murata wearing some Under Armour clothing, sparring and seeming very happy at the clothing. The advert was given the name "I just want to be strong Ryota Murata" but in reality the commercial doesn't really seem to sell the product. Sure the brand and it's logo is flashed a lot on the screen but unless you're a Japanese speaker our feeling is the concept of this advert falls somewhat short.
Guts Ishimatsu - Drift Spirits
This one is a very short one, at just 15 seconds, but is one that just makes us wonder what was going through everyone's mind when they came up with the idea. The commercial has former Lightweight champion Guts Ishimatsu dressed like a thumb with a steering wheel. And the thumb looks a little bit like a different body part. The advert is for a phone video game called Drift Spirits, and the games looks alright here, but it's Guts that steals the show in bizarre advert.
Yoko Gusiken - NTT
Whilst seeing Guts Ishimatsu as a thumb is entertaining, and easily the most interesting of the adverts here, we have to give Yoko Gushiken credit for all the work he's done in promoting things as well. Here he's advertising a TV service in Japan along with a Feisty young lady throwing combinations on the mitts with him. The CS and BS you see mentioned in the advert are the two satellite systems in Japan, with NTT offering both. Interestingly the eagle eared among you will maybe even recognise the music used here , it's "Conquistador" by Maynard Ferguson, the same track that Gushiken used for his ring walk music.
Koki Kameda - Pigg Fishing
If you thought Guts Ishimatsu being in a commercial for a video game was odd, here's one with Koki Kameda advertising some other game. This advert just looks terrible and poor Kameda seemed confused through out. Really not sure what's going on here, but the game looks absolutely terrible and Kameda's acting doesn't look much better than the game. Absolute no idea how to play the game, but it looks like a really poor social sim type thing with some fishing in it.
Tae Shik Kim - Saehan Motor Elf
Another short one to finish off as we look at a 1979 advert featuring former WBA Flyweight world champion Tae Shik Kim advertising a Saehn Motor Elf. Yeah the product sounds a bit naff in terms of it's name and the advert is old, and in black and white, but we can't help but love the music in use here and just and just how old this really is! It's over 40 years old...and it looks it!
When we have some free time we're hoping to add a series of fun articles to the site. Hopefully these will be enjoyable little short features
