Apples To Associations

A friend sent me this today. It is a take-off on probably the most famous Super Bowl advertisement of all time. If you’ve never seen it, you can see the original on YouTube.


Today, we celebrate the first glorious manifestation of the Information Purification Directives. We have created, for the first time in all history, a garden of pure greed—where any Officer, Director, Vendor, Consultant or other Snout-in-the-Trough may profit, secure from the vermin purveying contradictory truths. Our Unification of Thoughts is more powerful a weapon than any fleet or army on earth. We are one Official Family, with one will, one resolve, one cause. Our enemies shall talk themselves to death, and we will bury them with their own confusion. The Cult of the Personality shall prevail!

Steve Jobs RIP

I’m not sure if I would have wanted to work for Apple co-founder Steve Jobs but I sure did like his products. Over time I’ve owned a Macintosh Plus, mid-90s era PowerBook, 2 iPods, an iPhone 4, and an iPad2.

To honor his memory and his passing, I thought the 1984 Superbowl commercial was appropriate. It is still, to my mind, the best Superbowl commercial created.
