Everyone remembers the 1970's Maxell Man In The Chair Ad, I would like to find a this image printed on canvas, done some searching and not really finding much. i have a 2133 x 1200 .jpeg but thats a little small to have printed on a 3 1/2 to 4 foot wide canvas. Does anyone know of where this could be found ? I imagine I am not the only one out there that wanted to have this blown up to hang above my hi-fi.

Ah.. you remember the ad, but forgot what it was advertising... Maxell, not Memorex.:D

Which reminds me.. I never did receive my Maxell poster a couple of years ago when they reprinted a batch to give away. Did anyone else get theirs?

The Memorex ad campaign was "Is It Live...Or Is It Memorex..." and featured Ella Fitzgerald shattering a wine glass with her voice.

I got mine.

You might try Maxell Canada, and see if they have any more.

Go to art.com and type in " steigman" and you will find the poster there but don't think it's available in canvas.

I got two. I ordered one, they said they were out, and sent me to a place in Canada, I think, to order one. I got that one, then a few weeds later the first one I ordered came.:banana::thmbsp:

They also had a commercial with Chuck Mangione with a recording of his hit Feels So Good. They played the Memorex tape on what looks like a Pioneer deck with Floroscan meters.
