Sony Walkman: Meditating monkey
This is the commercial advertisement of Sony Walkman. This commercial was released in 1987 in the Japan entitled “Meditating monkey (猿の瞑想).” Although this commercial ad looks pretty amazing to watch, I am not quite sure about what message it is aiming to deliver.
The monkey, which became a topic by meditating while listening to a Walkman (音楽を聴きながら瞑想するサル), his name is Choromatsu (チョロ松). He was died January 14, 2007. He is 29 years old eight months human being about around 100 years old.
The song which was used in the commercial ad of “Sony Walkman” is Original soundtrack performed by Japanese songwriter Tatsushi Umegaki (梅垣達志) released on 1987.
However, this song is a song that is specially customized for the commercial ad of “Sony Walkman”. Thus, I am not able to get any information about this song and unfortunately you cannot download or purchase it.
