This is the first Apple Computer commercial
This is the full video of ’1984′, the commercial released by Apple on 22nd January 1984, during the Third Quarter of Super Bowl XVIII.
This was it’s only day time release; Other screenings were in the cinema’s.
For those confused, it is based on George Orwells book 1984, in which society is controlled by Big Brother and is being watched/heard night and day. On top of this, they are fuelled with hatred for the past and other societies other than their own.
’1984′ the commercial is based around one of the Two Minute Hate scenes, in which Apples case, the young woman in red shorts is suggesting Apple Macintosh will give people freedom in computing like never before (IBM was the main competitor at the time). The crowd of emotionless people are the members of the Big Brother society, taking in all the propaganda. The old chap in the large screen is Big Brother.

For all you little youngsters out there. You may have never seen what media, devices, formats etc we used. Here is just a little example.
Thank you Steve Jobs for providing all of us ungrateful Americans that take life and living for granted and providing us all with great technology and pioneering real futuristic entertainment.
You were a true genius. One of the very few people in the world I truly admired. You are a remarkable man and you and Bill Gates changed the universe and provided us the tools and GUI to become successful humans while providing cutting edge entertainment.
This is one of the first time I’ve actually been truly saddened to hear of just a huge loss. The universe will be lost without Steve Jobs. Steve built a wonderful team. He dreamed big. Steve did not wake up in the morning thinking what he could give himself. Steve woke up thinking how many more Ipods, Iphones, Macbooks he could give to help people. He was not very flamboyant. Steve was a very private hard working individualistic person. I think today represents a new Holiday on our Calendars.
You will be forever missed Steve. I know it’s lonely at the top, but enjoy the peace. God Bless
