“"Somebody was going to be fired for this"”

Om Apples (ö)kända reklamfilm, 1984:

Somebody was going to be fired for this. No way would Apple get away with marketing its new computer so boldly, in some TV ad depicting society as a cast of drones paralyzed by the preachings of a sinister, Big Brother figure.

For 28-year-old Steve Jobs, who resigned last month from the company he cofounded in 1976, the ambitious Orwellian commercial represented his first splash as Apple’s Macintosh division leader.

Så här snart 30 år senare så är det fullt förståeligt varför reklamfilmen blev som den blev.
