Think Different / The Crazy Ones – Steve Jobs version and the featured people in Europeana

When Steve Jobs died recently, there was a lot of interest in anything Apple.
One of the ‘trending topics’ of the week was this old commercial of the fruity computer company. Here is the version narrated by Jobs himself:

Here are some of these people from the original Apple video in Europeana:
Albert Einstein, Bob Dylan, Martin Luther King, Jr., Richard Branson,
John Lennon (with Yoko Ono), Buckminster Fuller, Thomas Edison, Muhammad Ali,
Ted Turner, Maria Callas, Mahatma Gandhi, Amelia Earhart,
Alfred Hitchcock, Martha Graham, Jim Henson (with Kermit the Frog), Frank Lloyd Wright,
Pablo Picasso.

For Edison there is a sound recording of him talking about the first words spoken into the phonograph; it is on a collection album, hence the weird thumbnail). The only one that I could not find in Europeana is Buckminster Fuller – for now I have cheated, and put in a link to his wikipedia page.
For Ted Turner I link to a Europeana object using a Wikimedia Commons image that was created by Luke Ford and was released under CC-BY.

A Dutch TV show (De Wereld Draait Door) created a Dutch version of this, which I will show shortly.
