Let’s Democratic party like it’s 1984?
A very creative anti-Hillary video, mixing in parts of the classic Orwellian “1984” Apple computer ad, is all the rage on the Web today. The San Francisco Chronicle says it “may be the most stunning and creative attack ad yet for a 2008 presidential candidate — one experts say could represent a watershed moment in 21st century media and political advertising.
“Yet the groundbreaking 74-second pitch for Democratic Illinois Sen. Barack Obama… is not on cable or network TV, but on the Internet.
And Obama’s campaign says it had absolutely nothing to do with the video that attacks one of his principal Democratic rivals, New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. Indeed, the ad’s creator is a mystery, at least for now.”
The Ridley Scott commercial for Apple — which introduced the computer to a wide audience in, yes, 1984 — has been updated with “Big Sister” Hillary speaking and an iPod in view.
