The L.A. Times has a nostalgic piece on the final curtain for VHS as its last distributor moves on. Well worth a read.
The above commercial references the RCA SelectaVision line of VCRs. My love of all things movies began with the RCA SelectaVision VideoDisc player that dad brought home some 30 years ago. They still have it, and it still works. (Check it out here. Move immediately to the 4:00 mark to skip the movie clips and see the ole "CED" in action.)
