webfind GEEK ALERT: 1984, Happy Birthday Mac

25 years ago the two Steves from California launched what would eventually become the product that help me simplify my life and renew my faith in computers. This is the Super Bowl ad that started it all. The ad was directed by Ridley Scott and is known to be the beginning of the big budget ads we all expect during the Super Bowl. Thought it only aired nationally just once, it is considered to be one of the most memorable ads of all time.  Happy Birthday Mac!
