This was the commercial that introduced the Apple Macintosh Computer to the world. Here're some fun facts from the Apple's 1984 commercial:
- The brief for "1984" was simple: Steve Jobs said, 'I want to stop the world in its tracks."
- We ran a 30- second version of "1984" in the top 10 U.S. markets, plus, in an admittedly childish move, in an 11th market--Boca Raton, Fla., headquarters for IBM's PC division.
- "1984" also ran in theaters through ScreenVision. One theater owner was so enamored with it, he ran it for a month after the buy was over.
- Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak saw the spot and offered to pay half the cost of running it out of his personal checking account.
