    I believe it was for Maxwell cassette tapes.

    It’s Maxell, not Maxwell. It was their ad for cassette tapes.

    It was indeed Maxell, and it was for their cassettes. That said, that’s a speaker, not a TV.

    Here’s the original ad on YouTube:

    It’s been duplicated and parodied for years. It’s mentioned in the company’s Wiki entry as well:

    The ad was for JENSEN SPEAKERS. I remember the campaign well. My friends parents had a set of them. They had the foam grid speaker fronts. This was late 70’s. For the time, they were great speakers.

    Apparently it’s been used as an ad for lots of different products, but the most popular one was Maxell’s.

    I remember this from the Maxell commericals on TV from the late ’80s.

    It was for Maxell; it was their ad campaign:

    There’s a link for the video of the commercial on YouTube there as well.

    It was definately Maxell’s advert. I remember it in all the HiFi magazines in the early eighties. Jensons ad had a similar theme, but had enormous speakers in the boot of a car (I think you yanks call it a trunk) . Speaker manufacturer Cervin Vega also had a similar advert for their “earthquake” series of speakers, also in the early eighties. Back then there wasnt many choices if you wanted an optimum brand of blank cassette, TDK and Memerox were about the only similar priced options to Maxell, but my Nakamichi recorder gave the best results with the Maxells

    It was Maxell… or in other parts of the world.. Memorex.

    The tagline was ‘Is it live, or is it Memorex’….
