The Fight Club / Mactintosh Connection

By Deane Barker on October 25, 2005

Trivia for Fight Club (1999): I found this in the trivia to the IMDb entry on “Fight Club.”

One of Project Mayhem’s acts of vandalism is the destruction of a display of Apple Macintosh computers. The explosion occurs at exactly 84 minutes into the film, an ironic reference to Apple’s famous tribute to George Orwell’s “Nineteen Eighty-Four” when they debuted the Macintosh during the 1984 Super Bowl.

    It was awesome.
