Ancient Apple Video Blue-Busters

This cheesetastic video was apparently played during an Apple sales meeting back in 1984. According to YouTube Commenter majorkahuna:

I was there in Oct. 1984. This was not an internal ad. I was a 1984 state of the art multimedia slide show with audio by Ray Parker Jr. who sang the original. There were also live dancers on the stage.

This was the opening presentation of the International Sales Meeting that introduced the Lightwriter later renamed Laserwriter.

Apple always used a current movie as a them for the sales meetings. in 1985 it was Back to the Future.

For the record I had a quick look and can’t find the 1985 Back to the Future video on YouTube… This makes me sad.

Venk Diagram

While this amuses me, I am slightly irked that the plethora of Venn Diagram joke images on the net are not actually Venn Diagrams at all. A Corrct representation of I aint afraid of no ghosts (ignoring the double negative) would have ghosts as a circle inside things I aint afraid of, the one above means the ghosts I aint afraid of are equivalent to Peter Venkman, which is nonsensical.

Maybe I’m reading too much into this.
