|To promote their new car line in 1966, Chevrolet produced a
featurette motion picture based on the popular James Bond movie series. An actor has
daydreams he is James Bond and imagines himself driving several new 1966 Chevy cars.
During one sequence, "Bond" picks picks up a woman on the road while
driving a Chevrolet Nova SS II convertible. He opens the glove compartment and a
hand emerges holding what looks like a special Blue/Grey Model "F" Focusing
View-Master® viewer. "Bond" hands the viewer to the woman who
holds it up and starts to advance the images, which appear on the screen as the
accessories of the new car. Suddenly, enemy agents appear in a 1966 Chevrolet
Corvette. "Bond" casually narrates that the viewer is made of plastic
explosives. The woman tosses the viewer from the car and it explodes, narrowly
missing the Corvette.
|In 1999, Universal Music and Video
Distribution manufactured and distributed a music CD featuring
unauthorized View-Master® artwork. The CD featured
a View-Master® stereo reel on the cover stylized to
look like a CD. On the back was an image of an adapted
View-Master® viewer. The CD, titled "Headliners
II", was given away as an incentive to bring people into
Best Buy stores the day after Thanksgiving.
