Blue Busters: A Goofy Apple Promotional Video from 1984 [Video]

This silly spoof of Ghostbusters was surely never intended to see life outside of Apple.

NetworkWorld explains:

This is a 4-minute, uncut version of “Blue Busters”, a 1984 takeoff on ‘Ghostbusters’ that Apple produced to show at the opening of its worldwide sales staff meeting in Hawaii in October 1984. The video includes a cameo appearance by Steve Wozniak. Our thanks to Craig Elliott, former Apple employee now CEO and co-founder of cloud-computing startup Pertino Networks, for giving us access to this video.

Surely we’re not the only ones that caught the “lost your soul” line timed with the boxes of “Blue” IBM boxes crushing the shopper.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
