What is this I don’t even–

Now, I’m not much of one to fall in line with stupid internet memes, but after watching this internal Apple promo from 1984, that’s about the only response I could muster.

Network World, who obtained an exclusive copy of the never-before-released video, sets the scene:

Entitled “1944,” the almost 9-minute full version was Apple’s in-house takeoff on “1984,” the iconic first Macintosh TV ad that caused a sensation during that year’s Super Bowl. Set as a World War II tale of good vs. IBM, it is a broadcast-quality production (said to have cost $50,000) that was designed to fire up Apple’s international sales force at a 1984 meeting in Hawaii.

Fair warning.
