Do you miss big hair? Consider moving to Pittsburgh. However, if you would like to re-experience a little Apple history, specifically dozens of Apple TV ads from the ’80s, then this is the place to start.

Remember the Every Steve Jobs Video list guys from YouTube? Yeah, they have been busy (again) and this time they’ve cast their nets for ’80s Apple TV ads — they found 54!

Here are three to set the mood.

Shotgun

If you used a PC for more than five minutes back in the day, you will understand this one. Then again, more than a few of you wouldn’t mind pumping a few rounds into a Windows machine or three.

Dual Mind

An absolute classic Apple TV ad that deserves a lot more credit than it generally gets. Whereas nearly everyone knows or remembers the “1984” Super Bowl, this one got forgotten, but is in the same league — think of it as a wild card.

After Hours

When it comes to the best Apple TV ads, there are essentially two kinds — the inspiring, grand vision and snark. Frankly, I wish Apple still did snark, like “I’m a Mac” or this one, boom, you are served.

Perhaps they should have named this one, “Oh, Waiter.”

Looking back on the long Apple history of TV advertising, what are you favorites?
