Apple's 1984 Ghostbusters Parody Unearthed
As it turns out, there was another exceptionally creative commercial devised by Apple in 1984 - the first, of course, being Big Brother-themed ad that remains one of the most iconic TV commercials in broadcast history.
Apple's stashed documents at Stanford University contains a video that, despite having never been ostensibly hidden from public view, has been viewed by very few people to date. The segment in question was an internal company ad at Apple that presented a once-timely and altogether cheesy spoof of the 1984 classic comedy Ghostbusters.
Called Blue Busters, the parody video paints Apple as the Ghostbusters, who try to suck the "Big Blue" a.k.a. IBM up and liberate the world. Blue Busters was made for a 1984 international sales meeting.

The "blue" is IBM i suppose? Font and color are certainly a match. (i haven't read the text yet, just watching the video).
P.S. If Samsung (read sam-suck) would have come with something like this for it's products rather than "apple sheep are stupid" and "tablet apple tried to stop", i would have not argued. This is entertaining, highly offensive, especially the "freaky blue's" part at the end, but entertaining. Main and most important difference is - this is anti-IBM product ad, it does not make "stupid sheep" of the customers...

Should have cast Chevy Chase as the store owner."Time circuits on...flux capacitor...(gulp)...fluxing"

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.
