According to Smash TV, who produced the 50-minute tour de force, ‘Memorex’ was sourced from nearly two days’ worth of ’80s television commercials ripped off old videotapes. The end product is the nightmarish, glowing detritus of the dead dreams of the middle class.

This is the sheen off sleek Nissan Sentras and beach party babes, dually shot in slow motion; this is warped, sugary charm of cereal jingles, long-forgotten station identifications, and fledgling computer graphics. This is “the ultimate VHS tape,” as Smash put it.
“The advertising industry’s collective wet dream.”
