Quite possibly my favorite commercial ever. (From TBWA\Chiat\Day’s Think Different campaign in 1997.)

Here’s to the crazy ones.

The misfits.
The rebels.
The troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.

They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo.

You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward.

And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.

Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

Love.

P.S. For any other Apple fans out there, there’s a fun Easter egg related to this campaign that can still be found in your Mac OS. Want a hint? Look at your TextEdit icon… I mean REALLY look…
