Early Pixar Employee Accepts Disney Legend Award On Behalf Of Steve Jobs
This past weekend, the late Steve Jobs was honored with a "Disney Legend" award at the D23 Expo 2013. John Lasseter, an early employee of Pixar, accepted the award on behalf of the Apple co-founder and former chief executive officer, and in doing so recounted his memories and experiences with Jobs. Two videos of the acceptance speech have since appeared online. It's emotional footage, but fans of Apple, Pixar, and - of course - Jobs will want to watch Lasseter's acceptance speech in full. Both of the below videos offer similar footage, though one is shot at a different angle. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6RcicFebqRE&feature=player_embedded
