New banners as part of the revamped Beirut/NTSC image


After the new logo, the small promo videos on youtube, now comes two new banners in the line of the retro/kitsch visuals which I am adopting, these banners were reworked from old ads before computers stripped things from their orginality. Does anyone remember "vente reclame" as opposed to "seasonal sale"?... Does anyone remember when "video cassettes" were all the rage?...
Well, the banner above, which is directly linked to my youtube page reads "NTSC movies now available on video cassettes. Coying forbidden." and the second which links to the isuu.com page where I publish my books says "vente reclame now in Boutique Beirut/NTSC"... All while making them, the jingles that used to be played on Voix du Liban kept looping in my head... Gebran Metni, MaxiLara, and all these other shops that used to advertise as if there was no tomorrow....
Oh well, that's just me I suppose!
PS: Mustapha was right, banners were taking too much space from the visibility, so eventually the one that says "vente reclame" came to replace the upper header of the blog...
