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