Santorum woos voters with Apple inspired 1984 ad

The Atlantic:

I do have to wonder what Steve Jobs would have thought if he had lived long enough to see this video – which is Rick Santorum’s application of the 1984 motif in his campaign.

It also has echoes of Apple’s much disliked “Lemmings” ad.

    Good commercial. Why couldn’t Paul have done this video though.

    The idea of either Santorum or Paul doing this video makes me want to vomit- in an extremely projectile manner.

    Huh…I had no clue Steve Jobs wrote 1984.

    Well, points for honesty: in a commercial with dozens of actors representing Republican primary voters, there isn’t a single black person.

    I really wonder how Steve Jobs would feel about being referenced in the same breath as any politician, much less this one. I think he would be digested and the Atlantic should apologize for the reference.

    This ad would work to rail any Republican.
