    Default Promo Poster Question

    Hey everyone! I have a very extensive VH memorabelia collection, but am having some trouble getting info on a piece I recently found. As best I can tell, it is a promo poster for the 1984 album. The poster is roughly 4' x 3' and shows the smoking baby/angel close up, but off center to the left. the entire right side of the piece sports red lettering that says:

    "Van Halen is Watching You!"

    Underneath that in black it reads:

    "1984"

    Has anyone ever seen this before or can you tell me something about it? I've tracked down history on some very strange things that I have bought, but I'm stumped on this one. Even a verification that it was a promo of some sort would help. (Warner Bros. copyright in small print is visible in the bottom corner.)

    Yup, dated 1983 and marked "for promotional use only, not for sale." I thought I knew of all such pieces, but I guess not.

    I had one of those; got it from the record store where I worked when the album came out. Sold it a few years back on ebay for about $150.

    I had that poster on my wall for years, it was HUUUUUUGE. I forgot how I got it now it's been 25 years, but someone gave it to me.
