The Times article is paywalled, but the ad can be Googled.

That's not all that changed. Exclusive of production costs, the 1984 ad in the Super Bowl cost about $368,000 for 30 seconds. This last Super Bowl ran ads for about $7 million for 30 seconds. blush


On a Mac since 1984.
Currently: 24" M1 iMac, M2 Pro Mac mini with 27" BenQ monitor, M2 Macbook Air, MacOS 14.x; iPhones, iPods (yes, still) and iPads.
