One of the most memorable ads of the Think Different campaign was Crazy Ones, Apple’s tribute to the rebels, the troublemakers, the ones who see things differently. And the ones who change the world. Back in August when Steve Jobs stepped down as CEO, AdWeek released a revision to this heroes tribute, adding Jobs to the end of the sequence. With Steve’s passing we decided to run this video again.
“The images showed everyone from John Lennon to Gandhi, but the inference was that Apple’s visionary leader was one these remarkable souls. Now, with Jobs resigning as CEO of Apple, we’ve added him to the end of “Crazy Ones”—a place he rightfully earned, even if he would never come right out and say so.”
Many people always felt Jobs should always have been included in this spot. Now he certainly is, at least in our memories. RIP Steve. Thanks for being Insanely Great!
