A couple in the basement of the FHSU union. The male student with a beard is playing pinball while the female student is gazing on, watching him. Both students have medium-length shaggy hairstyles, which were trendy in the 1970s. Additionally, the girl and boy students have bootcut flare jeans with wide leather belts and boots. There are four pinball machines, each of which has a different backbox style. The machine farthest to the left has an image of young women and different suits from a deck of cards. The pinball machine to the right of it is named Bally SeaRay, and it has an aquarium theme backbox with fishes, submarines, and animated characters snorkeling. To the right of the Bally SeaRay is the Bally Expressway. The backbox is an urban city with futuristic characteristics. The art on the backbox has a cubism style, making the male character look like a robot.
