For myself, Memorex is a brand name that seems like it’s been around forever. No matter what magazine I picked up back in those days I’d be sure to see Ella Fitzgerald or Melissa Manchester in one of their “Is it Live, or it it Memorex?” ads
2011 is the 50th anniversary of the company that got it’s start in the very early days of Silicon Valley as a supplier of computer tapes.
Back during my younger days in the 70s I knew Memorex best as one of the leading brands of audio cassettes. It was also known by it’s signature ad tagline “Is it Live, or it it Memorex?”.
Times have changed and now Memorex is part of Imation specializing in flash memory and other electronics.
Turning 50 is a awesome excuse to throw an party, and there’s few better party folk to invite than the colourful Yo Gabba Gabba gang, including Brobee, Foofa, Muno, Toodee, Plex and of course DJ Lance Rock.
Throughout the summer hundreds of fans participated in Memorex’s Dancey Dance video contest on Facebook uploadin. The winning family of the contest and 16 lucky bloggers (ooooooh so jealous) Have been invited to join the party as well.
Don’t miss the party live on UStream next Friday at noon Central time for presents, cake and of course ‘dancey dancing’.
