Apple has had some amazing commercials through the years.
But what happened to the stars?
You know some of them. Justin Long and John Hodgman are recognised names. One of them landed a spot on “Glee.”
But we had to track down some others.
From the girl from the “1984” spot to a Japanese doctor who authored papers about influenza, we found out where they ended up.
And here's a very cool anecdote about the commercial, which nearly didn't get aired: 'Chiat-Day wanted the commercial to qualify for upcoming advertising awards, so they ran it once at 1 AM at a small television station in Twin Falls, Idaho, KMVT, on December 15, 1983. And sure enough it won just about every possible award, including best commercial of the decade. 20 years later it's considered one of the most memorable television commercials ever made.'
She had a brief career in movies (including Bed and Breakfast) and turned down offers to go on Leno and Letterman.
You know what happened to Einstein, Bob Dylan, Martin Luther King Jr., John Lennon, and the rest. Steve Jobs certainly joined their ranks.
