Apple's Wild-Eyed 1984 Promo Video

What you see here is a Macintosh promo video produced by Apple for a marketing event in 1984. The video celebrated a few things including a) Flashdance b) the launch of the Macintosh c) our inexplicable fascination with Patrick Nagel.

From the poster’s comments:

Trivia: when I saw this ‘live’ at the Mac introduction, we, as Apple Dealers, all LAUGHED OUR ASSES OFF at time marker 02:47 – when the guy carried a 60 pound LISA computer under his arm like it was a laptop!

Trivia: Some fellow Apple Dealers, who were watching the Macintosh introduction, got out of their seats to call their stock brokers from the pay phones to issue a ‘buy’ order! Smart. I wish I did the same. I was too involved in figuring out how I could afford to buy both a Mac and a Lisa.

Hindsight is usually eagle-eyed, as they say.
