Flashback Friday: Apple and the Blue Busters

Flashback FridayI think we can officially say that the early days of Apple were definitely not as polished in video production as they are now.

A few months ago we brought you a video from Apple of the 1980’s called “Leading the Way.”  It was, to put it mildly, mind-numbingly bad.  Another video surfaced earlier this month entitled “1944” that had Steve Jobs playing Franklin D. Roosevelt in a propaganda-style war film, and while not quite as bad as the former, it was still pretty painful.  While Apple would probably like to forget a lot of these videos exist, another one has now found its way to YouTube.

For a while now clips have circulated from a video called “Blue Busters” that was a parody of Ghostbusters, and obviously had Apple taking aim, yet again, at IBM.  The full video has shown up now, and … it may be the most painful one to watch yet.  You do get some nice younger shots of Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs, but that’s only if you can survive through the horrible parody version of the well-known Ray Parker Jr. song.

All I can say is, I’m so grateful Apple grew up and we don’t see videos like this from them any more.
