Long-Lost Apple Video Has Steve Jobs Hilariously Portraying FDR
May 3, 2012 01:12 PM
VIDEO WHICH WILL LIVE IN INFAMY
For all their displays of unabashed corporate loyalty and cringe-worthy embarrassment, there are few things greater than internal corporate video productions.

Chuck E. Cheese
. Even well-intentioned but highly disastrous showcases -- like Steve Ballmer's sweaty "Developers! Developers! Developers!" chant or
at this year's CES -- are perfect for the occasional Facebook Like or tweet.

from former Apple employee Craig Elliott, the video was intended to be an unofficial "sequel" to the company's iconic "1984" ad, entitled "1944."
