R-kioski is a nationwide chain of kiosks that over time has evolved into more of a chain of convenience stores. This is the top 5 of it’s promotional matchboxes from the 1980s.

Younger readers may not know this, but there was a time before Pirate Bay when instead of downloading films you actually had to get out of the house and rent a movie on a big chunky cassette. The tricky part was remembering to rewind it upon return, or they would slap on a “rewinding fee”. Good old times.
Instead of renting you of course also had the option of “taping” whatever was on TV, like news or a Polish film set in a coal mine. There were also different, smaller cassettes for taping stuff that you heard on the radio.
This is a bit unclear. We’re pretty sure there were no musical instruments for sale at R-kioski? By the way, how surprising is it that they would choose to illustrate music with a saxophone in the 1980s?
So why is she making that sound? Doesn’t matter. Number one matchbox of the 1980s!
