Over the years, the folks at Apple have inspired us, made us think, and made us laugh. Their commercials are almost as good as the products themselves. Here are the best of the best in Apple advertising.
COMMERCIAL: Apple Macintosh (1984)
WHY IT'S GREAT: This is the one that started it all. Also it's terrifying AF.
COMMERCIAL: Apple iMac (1998)
WHY IT'S GREAT: Jeff Goldblum, obviously. I could listen to him rattle on and on forever. Also, this ad spawned an amazing spin off where someone slowed the ads down and made the actor appear super drunk. Amazing.
COMMERCIAL: Original iPhone (2007)
WHY IT'S GREAT: Nostalgia! Remember land lines? That sh*t was cray.
COMMERCIAL: iPod (2004-2008)
WHY IT'S GREAT: This was one of the most iconic advertising campaigns ever. It combined popular music with bright colors and dancing silhouettes. It's instantly recognizable and spawned a lot of parodies in its day.
COMMERCIAL: Apple PowerBook (1992)
TITLE: "What's on your PB- Standup Comedian"
WHY IT'S GREAT: This ad was part of a series where people with different jobs told how they used their Apple PowerBook, but this one is really special because it's always important to remember how annoying stand up comedians are.
COMMERCIAL: Apple (1997)
TITLE: "The Crazy Ones"
WHY IT'S GREAT: An inspirational ad narrated by Richard Dreyfuss, “The Crazy Ones” was the first commercial approved by Steve Jobs after he returned to the company in 1997.
COMMERCIAL: iPhone 4S (2012)
TITLE: "Date Night"
WHY IT'S GREAT: No matter how many times you watch it, you can't help but wonder if Samuel L. Jackson is gonna drop an F-bomb on Siri.
COMMERCIAL: iPad Air (2014)
TITLE: "Your Verse"
WHY IT'S GREAT: This commercial features the Robin Williams inspirational speech from the 1989 film Dead Poets Society. Tragically, Williams passed away the same year.
COMMERCIAL: Apple Music (2016)
TITLE: "Taylor vs. Treadmill"
WHY IT'S GREAT: Um, it's got Taylor Swift falling on her face. Need I say more?
COMMERCIAL: Mac Computer (2006-2009)
TITLE: "Get a Mac"
WHY IT'S GREAT: Remember these ads? Of course you do. There were 66 of them total, and they were on constantly. In the series, Justin Long plays the young cool Mac and John Hodgman played the bumbling nerd PC. You wanna be cool right?
