Steve Jobs Played FDR in a Video for Apple Employees

(Video Link)

It was 1984. Apple had assembled top employees in a retreat to prepare for the big push against IBM. To inspire them, Steve Jobs made this video comparing the effort with World War II. Jobs, of course, was President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. But only for 28 seconds of a 9 minute video, which you can watch at the link.

These SNL type spoofs as part of employee teleconferences were common at that time. The company I was at, just down the street and an Apple partner, did them every week. We even had an onsite TV station larger than the local network tv station. I wouldn't be at all surprised, given how often Steve was at our office, if this was shot there.
