Congratulations, Macintosh, on your 28 years!

If you think the iPhone is revolutionary and you were impressed by the excitement of the audience during its presentation, review the video above and tell me if it is not even bigger!

And it was through this commercial, directed by Ridley Scott and aired two days before its release, that the Macintosh took over the world:

Congratulations on your insanely greats 28 years old, Macintosh!
