  1. "Yes, Apple will save us from the terrifying 1984-style future. For as we can clearly see today, no longer are people lined up like cattle for hours and hours on end! No longer will people dress alike in cold, colorless environments! No longer will any 'cult-ish' style groups gather together to honor a grand, controversial leader! And most importantly, no longer will we be brain-dead, lifeless zombies who plug ourselves into the machine of life we can also call 'The System'! Thank you, Apple. You have done well."

    A society that has conformed to be slaves to their brand with no questions asked and each new gadget that is sold to the mindless gets bought without a thought to whether it is necessary or not…

    Well done Apple for accomplishing what you set out to do…Make human drones.

    10. "1984" for Apple (1984)

    Still a distant second behind IBM back then, Apple was ready to launch its Macintosh personal computer in 1984 and wanted to make a splash. And it sure did: This ad (helmed by film director Ridley Scott), which positioned Apple as the rebel upstart in an Orwellian world dominated by PCs, shocked viewers and gave Apple a cool-kid brand cachet that it still enjoys today. More importantly, it also made Super Bowl ads required viewing from that day on.
