a new political world

in an interesting attempt to pull a commercial image and tap a political view, some innovative people took the apple “1984” ad and replaced images with Hillary Clinton (the ad promotes Barack Obama’s campain).

first, it is making waves all over the news world. i saw it on the today show and it is on youtube. it pangs of a number of things for me.

as an apple person, i believe using something like this is a tough sell (especailly from a copyright standpoint). second – they hack apart the apple logo at the end to try and make it a Obama “O”) – treading on some very shaky ground…

that being said, this does show the power of the internet, communication methods like youtube and the ability of someone (and the Obama camp is outright stating they had nothing to do with this). thoughts, concerns, statements – let me know.
