  • Fun facts about this art: The Maxell "Blown Away" commercial is a classic TV ad from the 1980s that has become iconic for its use of dramatic visuals and memorable music. It first aired in 1983 to promote Maxell's line of audio cassettes.
    The commercial opens with a man in a leather armchair sitting in front of a speaker, holding a blank audio cassette. As he inserts the cassette into his stereo and turns up the volume, the camera zooms in on the speaker as it begins to vibrate violently. Suddenly, the man's hair and clothes are blown back by a powerful gust of wind, and the room around him is filled with debris as the music on the cassette reaches its climax.

    The idea behind the commercial was to showcase the power and quality of Maxell's audio cassettes, and the concept of being "blown away" by the sound was intended to resonate with music lovers and audiophiles. The visual effects were created using a combination of wind machines, exploding furniture, and debris thrown at the actor in the chair.

    The ad was an immediate hit and became one of the most memorable commercials of the 1980s. It was parodied in countless movies, TV shows, and other advertisements, and is still considered a classic example of effective and impactful advertising.
