This was the commercial that introduced the Apple Macintosh Computer to the world.
Ironically, Apple has grown to the level where this commercial it inadvertently depicts exactly how Apple’s consumers react toward its products today. Apple in many ways today *is* 1984. With the cult-like following, think of the grey guy on the screen as Steve Jobs and the drones sat down as? Apple fanboys.
With regards to Social Media, this video has spread almost as virally as the original commercial, what with 5.8 million views since it was posted in December 2005.
