Sean Connery Letter Disses Steve Jobs and Apple

Posted on Jun 21 2011 - 11:46am by Richard Sharp

Twitter was buzzing this morning after a letter from James Bond shockingly told the co-founder of Apple that he was just ‘a computer salesman’, before telling him he was ‘James f!cking Bond’.

We are of course talking about the hoax letter from Sean Connery to Steve Jobs, presented on monogramed paper and dated 1998. This was the first year of the Apple iMac and the letter is a ‘response’ from Sean after being approached by Steve Jobs to appear in an advert for the brand.

The reply offers some amazing moments as Sean is clearly unimpressed with the request. The letter starts with ‘I will say this one more time’, which suggests Apple has been hounding him on more than one occasion to appear in the advert. He has no interest ‘in changing the world’, a statement that Apple used in early campaigns and is usually reflected in new and upcoming promotions.

The letter can be read in full below, our favorite part has to be the 007 logo at the bottom of the letter, a touch of genius from the hoaxer that we hope Sean actually uses.

    The success of Apple has been well documented. It is the largest company in the world by some measures and its retail stores, which sell more merchandise per square foot ($4,709) than any other chain, are as valuable as the White House (appraised at $4,752 per square foot). And in the fourth quarter of 2011, more iPhones were sold than there were babies born in the world. Not bad for a company that was on the verge of bankruptcy only 15 years ago. At the same time, however, Apple has operated under a veil of secrecy that rivals that of the most clandestine intelligence agencies.
