Recently I grabbed a huge box of taped off TV VHS tapes. Some are labelled, some are not. Every one of them is full of movies and shows taped off of network and cable. Even better, all of them are full of commercials. It is going to take me months if not years to go through them all. Now that I have these, I want more of course. I’ll be putting the call out to donate all tapes to me for my research.
We begin with Batman airing on CBS right before Batman Forever was coming to theaters. The entire night is full of previews and Batman history. This will take a while to comb through and the quality isn’t great but we’re just starting! I am hopeful to find fast food commercials, toy ads, and who knows what else!
