Graphic designer and marketer Sam Henri Gold has assembled an incredible archive of Apple promotional materials dating back to the 1970s, which has uploaded a Google Drive folder for people to see. The folder contains hundreds of videos and photos of the company's products, and it's well worth the time to take a trip down memory lane.
Gold has painstakingly organized this miniature online museum for decades and years, allowing visitors to get around and see how Apple is marketed over the years. The file mainly includes the company's television ads, but there are also promotional features, product photos and print ads. Golden notes that started archiving the videos A couple of years ago, the "Every Apple Video" channel on YouTube stopped being updated.
I decided to open my Apple video file via Google Drive as a test drive to make sure all the dates are correct and to make sure I have not missed anything, take a look and enjoy! Encouraged comments 🙂 https://t.co/B2U7KlzZ9n pic.twitter.com/G1iLMmFHJN

The file includes a wide range of material. The iconic 1984 Super Bowl ad by Ridley Scott is there, but there is also a place that showed the placement of the Apple PowerBook in Independence Day. But the file also extends to today, making him see everything from the first announcements of Apple's iTunes software, iPod, iPhone and iPad. Gold also included a series of videos published to announce several products that you see in the company's grand speeches, speeches in Steve Jobs and other company executives, and more.
All in all, it's a really great trip for Apple fans, one where you can spend hours watching.
