To celebrate Steve Jobs' official return to Apple (AAPL) this week, Kobi Shely has posted a YouTube clip from MacHEADS, his 54-minute "fanboy documentary" on the cult surrounding the company and its charismatic CEO.
Shely wrote, directed, co-produced and edited the film. The 2-minute 22-second segment he selected is centered around the return of Jobs to Apple in Dec. 1996 after he was ousted in a boardroom coup nearly a dozen years earlier.
The clip includes rare footage from the July 1998 keynote in which a younger, chubbier Jobs announces Apple's return to profitability and introduces the first iMac.
"First of all," says San Francisco Chronicle sex columnist Violet Blue, in glasses, Mary Janes and peek-a-boo top, "I never knowingly slept with a Windows user. Ever."
That tells you pretty much all you need to know about MacHeads, the 2008 film now enjoying a second life at Amazon (where it's currently the No. 4 top-selling documentary) and the iTunes Store (No. 8). Both retailers recently added the film for sale MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Mar 2, 2009 12:30 PM ET
