It of course has nothing to do with the Olympics and its theme is clearly "1984" by George Orwell. Apple did not want to run the ad, but Steve Wozniak (the "other" Steve) said he would pay to broadcast it himself. It's iconic, of course, and very very famous. It won tons of awards and, most importantly, introduced the Mac, an attempt by Apple to catch the rising tide of the IBM PC, intruduced first in 1981, which it considered to be the "corporate world." Apple was in serious trouble because of waning sales of the Apple ][, its bread and butter computer which was eclipsed by the newer faster IBMs and their clones. Apple had introduced a defective Apple /// to yawns and then failed again with the Lisa, a very Mac-like computer costing $10,000.

The Mac saved Apple and this commercial was very much in the corpoprate image Apple wanted to portray, a little guy overcoming great odds and an entrenched corporate world.

A year later it aired the following Lemmings commercial in the same anti-IBM spirit during the Super Bowl.



Sometimes context helps.

Cool. I thought you would be interested in the background and reasoning for the ad. The long anticipated event happened in 1984 with the first Mac. As I remember it, the "acolytes" in the ad were hired from a religious cult in Great Britain and paid to shave their heads. Here's some more detailed information about the ad for your reading pleasure.

They show us 1984, Big Brother and the identically dressed drones all staring mindlessly at a screen, and tell us to stick with Apple and 1984 Won't Look Like 1984. Look around, we've got identically dressed drones all staring mindlessly at iPads.

I love it when a plan comes together!
