Just for fun, TV Squad has an article today about a long forgotten commercial from 1983 for the Apple Lisa, starring Kevin Costner, “long before his big screen success in movies like The Untouchables, Bull Durham, and Field of Dreams.”
MacDailyNews Take: And Waterworld! Never leave out the under-appreciated Waterworld! “I’ve sailed further than most men have dreamed…”
Bob Sassone writes for TV Squad, “[Costner] plays a cool business guy who bikes to work at his leisure, trusty dog companion by his side. He gets to his nice office and turns on the Lisa and then gets a phone call from his wife (I’m assuming), and he tells her he’ll be home for breakfast. I’m not sure if this is supposed to mean he biked to work early in the morning before she got up or he’s been out all night ‘inputing’ ‘data’ into ‘Lisa,’ if you know what I mean.”
MacDailyNews Note: Those familiar with Apple’s iconic “1984” Mac commercial will recognize the voiceover talent as Edward Grover:
