The Most Famous Geek Advertisement Ever?
One commercial stands out amongst all the advertising aimed at geeks through the years. Though you might not have seen it air live, you will certainly know about it and will have seen it since.
Which ad am I referring to?
The iconic Apple 1984 Big Brother ad of course!
Developed for the superbowl, and contrasting the Apple free spirit with the Big Blue Big Brother of the dominant IBM competitor, Apple created a huge amount of buzz and anticipation, and for many this commercial still sums up the ideal of Apple Macs to this day.
Add to the mix expert direction from none other than Bladrunner Director Ridley Scott and you have a recipe for a historic advert, even though it was only intended to be on screen for a few minutes.
