Larry David as soon as performed a verbose, neurotic app approval officer in a skit for Apple. However curb your enthusiasm (womp womp), it by no means aired. Clearly somebody at Apple didn’t assume it was fairly, fairly, pr-et-ty ok to be proven to clients.
Nevertheless, the video — apparently shot as a doable intro for WWDC 2014 — has been leaked on-line by Sam Henri-Gold of the dearly departed Unofficial Apple Archive, a former repository of Apple movies now not round. Whereas Henri-Gold solely shared a snippet, the entire video was later posted to YouTube. Test it out under.
As Henri-Gold notes, the intro movie featured Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm co-creator David, alongside comic and actor J.B. Smoove and Snap CEO Evan Spiegel.
It’s not clear why Apple determined to go a unique route ultimately. Though Apple has used comedic intros to WWDC previously, in 2014 it went with a extra critical one exhibiting builders speaking concerning the significance of, effectively, growing.
The truth that this Larry David skit is a 10-minute video means that this might not be the finished lower — since Apple would by no means run a 10-minute intro to WWDC. It’s doable that Apple may have launched it as an entire quick movie on-line (which it’s additionally accomplished previously with different Apple-centric movies), though that didn’t occur, both.
Larry David: Apple fan?
I don’t know whether or not or not David is an Apple fan. His former collaborator Jerry Seinfeld most actually was, nevertheless. Macs seem in Jerry’s condo in just about each episode of Seinfeld, making Seinfeld one of many world’s most well-known Apple fanboys. (Sarcastically, Jerry later made a business for Microsoft deemed so unhealthy that Microsoft pulled them after a couple of weeks. That’s regardless of paying Jerry a reported $10 million to take part.)
Personally, I’d be all for extra installments of Larry David: app approval officer. Even low-grade Larry David is a world higher than no Larry David!
