    This was directed by Ridley Scott. As with some of the others, Xbox telling people that life is short so they should spend more time playing Xbox, the irony here is probably intentional.





    Corpsey, if you're looking for a historical account of the whole branding machine vs. the people battle for culture, then this is good: https://www.jstor.org/stable/10.1086...o_tab_contents

    Can send it to you if you want. It's probably the best critical analysis of advertisement history I read before dropping out.

    Apple's "1984" was also famous for being aired only once, during the Super Bowl that year. It was so unlike any other ad before it and made such a huge splash during the most watched annual TV event that it got written about in the press and discussed for months and years afterwards (all at no cost to Apple).
