In 1983 famed director Ridley Scott made a very strange yet completely awesome commercial for the Apple Macintosh computer. Taking its cues from George Orwell's 1984, the ad shows a dystopic world dominated by Big Brother oppressiveness and shaved headed sameness. Widely considered to be one of the best commercials of all time, the spot nonetheless only played once during that year's Super Bowl. What do you think? Should Ridley have lobbied to direct the feature film over Michael Radford? Or does the short shorts wearing blond give you the impression the original material is better served as is? Enjoy the full commercial after the break.

too bad Ridley felt he had to rip off a real visionary to complete this new Mac ad.
