Matt Groening Apple ads

Matt Groening Apple ads

I saw these ads on Boingboing late last night/early this morning before promptly falling dead asleep on my keyboard (do not try this at home, kids), and Tyler was kind enough to send in this tip this afternoon and remind me. Matt Groening’s series of Apple ads circa 1989 were aimed at college students and are, as most of Groening’s stuff tends to be, dead-on funny.

Since we’ve been lately reminiscing about the 21st birthday of the Mac - does anybody remember these ads when they first ran? Did anybody purchase their first Mac as a result of seeing a spoof of themselves in one of these Groening ads?
