Charlie Chaplin is for the ages

44 notes

I mentioned in my previous post about Apple Computers “THINK DIFFERENT” Campaign in 1997, it helped to make the company the giants they are today.
Apple´s Think Different ad campaign - 1997. The theme of the campaign is one that celebrates figures in history who changed the world by thinking different. 

Charlie Chaplin 
Albert Einstein - a good friend of Charlie Chaplin’s, he and his wife were guests at the premiere of City Lights in 1931
Mahatma Gandhi - someone Charlie Chaplin very much wanted to meet, and they did in September of 1931 in London, England…ironically enough it has been reported Gandhi who led a very different life had never seen a Chaplin film and did not know who he was..as hard as that is to believe.
Jim Henson (of muppets fame) - in 2000 Jim Henson’s estate purchased the old Charlie Chaplin Studios on La Brea Avenue in Hollywood, they unveiled a 12 foot Kermit the Frog dressed like Charlie’s “little tramp”.
