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.

Unscripted ad with Miles Davis,
there also one with Jimmy Cliff.

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.
