WATCH: Steve Jobs Preps for His First On-Air Interview

Rough Monday morning? Here’s a consolation prize via our sister site TV Spy (who snagged it from the beautiful people at Mental Floss).

This 1978 clip, which appears to be pre-air prep for a lost promotional interview, reveals that even the mighty Steve Jobs had a little trouble with media appearances at 23.

Jobs, who’d just begun his journey from basement geek to tech world demigod, was fascinated by the concept of watching himself on-screen, exclaiming “Look at that! I’m on television!”

We’re most amused by his ability to keep his Skywalker-era hair shining so brilliantly despite the fact that he was “deathly ill, actually, and ready to throw up at any moment” (he was “not joking”).

Oh, and the beard. Good God, that beard.
