Apple Macintosh 1984 Superbowl Commercial

Pretty unnerving TV slot from 1984, advertising Apple's first commercially available Macintosh computer. A far cry from the cute Mac vs. PC ads of recent years, this campaign was all about branding Apple as a rule-breaker in computer technology. It may not be a coincidence then, that the raspy Euro-villain on the big TV screen looks suspiciously like Bill Gates.

Am I the only one who thinks she looks like she's wearing a Hooters uniform?

That's a pretty badass commercial, though.

The sad thing is, I remember watching that commercial.

You know the amazing thing is, is that this commercial only ran once... ever. It really says a lot about how powerful it was; that we are still talking about it 25 years later.

Yeah, it's amazing how powerful this commercial is. Far removed from most modern Super Bowl drivel:
