END THIS NIGHTMARE
I found this video yesterday after its publication. To tell you the truth I was concerned to blogging about it because I found it strong in content and also in the context of the unrest and protests because of the murder of George Floyd.
I also looked up the original Apple ad to add context to it.
Today I’m over that feeling and I present it to you.
The Apple MacIntosh ad is included for comparison.
Please, let’s end this nightmare!
“1984” is an American television commercial which introduced the Apple Macintosh personal computer for the first time. It was conceived by Steve Hayden, Brent Thomas and Lee Clow at Chiat/Day, Venice, produced by New York production company Fairbanks Films, and directed by Ridley Scott.
Anya Major performed as the unnamed heroine and David Graham as Big Brother. Its only U.S. daytime televised broadcast was on January 22, 1984 during and as part of the telecast of the third quarter of Super Bowl XVIII.

We are living in Trump’s dystopian nightmare, foreshadowed by his description of ‘American Carnage‘ during his Inauguration Address.
Trump’s admiration and emulation of dictators and despots has brought American democracy to its brink. This is a national nightmare we must all end by voting Trump out of office this November.
The video is inspired by the famous ‘1984‘ Apple Macintosh commercial which itself was an allusion to George Orwell‘s novel Nineteen Eighty-Four.
The 1984 Apple ad signified the end to conformity with the protagonist throwing a hammer at a screen depicting ‘Big Brother.’ Similarly, in our video, as Trump spews hate and dictatorial rhetoric, the hammer thrown at the screen signifies the end of the Trump regime and the end to this American nightmare.

“1984” is an American television commercial which introduced the Apple Macintosh personal computer for the first time.
The estate of George Orwell and the television rightsholder to the novel 1984 considered the commercial to be a flagrant copyright infringement, and sent a cease-and-desist letter to Apple and Chiat/Day in April 1984.
The commercial was never televised as a commercial after that.
