A nod to 1984's famous "1984" Apple spot. Two questions:

a) Will people get the reference?
b) Does it simply continue to deify Apple as some type of untouchable brand, not emphasizing enough the way we are all conformists for buying Apple?

I think who ever ends up knocking Apple off the pedastool will do it by acting like they are not even there.

Unfortunately, this is not the first time this concept was done. I shot a short film, “Do Not Disconnect” in 2009 with a girl breaking out of a world plugged into headphones. A world with no human interaction.

Since we’re not expecting credit from Motorola, I’m asking people to please take a few minutes to watch how this idea was first done. Decide for yourself if you think this is too similar.

I'm not selling anything. We just made a fun, heartfelt short film.

Thank you for your time!

I encourage your personal film making, but I have to disagree that this has nothing to do with your video. There were only using white earbuds to connect the Apple brand, without actually saying "Apple".

I'm all for taking it to the iPad, but the tagline totally wimped out.


"I love some things, and don't love some other things."
