A lesser known variant on this theme is “1944”, a nine-minute World War II story of “good vs IBM””, created to motivate Apple’s sales force. In the role as President Franklin D. Roosevelt, we see none other than Steve Jobs himself. Steve makes his appearance around 5:28.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXf5flR9duY
For more information about “1944”, visit Michael Mark’s blog, where he writes that Steve Jobs was very excited to play Roosevelt and that they originally wanted to use footage from Charlie Chaplin‘s masterpiece “The Great Dictator” in he film.
