At Macworld, actor/musician Fred Armisen (star of SNL and Portlandia) shared the story of meeting Steve Jobs at the opening of Apple’s flagship Fifth Ave. store in New York City.

He added that meeting Apple’s late CEO was like “meeting a head of state or a rock star” and says that when they first made eye contact, Jobs made the hand gesture Armisen made in the famous SNL Weekend Update sketch where Armisen, as Jobs, introduced the iPod Invisa, an iPod so small you could not see it with the naked eye yet it held “eight million songs” and you could play Pong on it.
