Political spoofs use Apple
A recent spoof of Apple's famous 1984 advertisement that introduced the company's computers to the masses carries a powerful political message against U.S. senator Hilary Clinton, while another spoof of an Apple event pokes fun at current U.S. political decisions overseas. The mashup of Apple's 1984 ad promotes senator Barack Obama, and signals a new era with a fresh wave of politics, according to SFGate.com. Additionally, a comedy skit recently aired on a popular TV show featuring a mock Apple special event where an actor posing as Steve Jobs reveals an 'iRack.' The product appears flimsy, and members of the audience begin questioning its stability as well as the intelligence behind 'filling up the iRack' with more 'things.' The actor posing as Jobs also throws money at the iRack, much to the dismay of the people acting as Apple's shareholders.
