The First Folks To Compare Hillary to ‘Big Brother’ of 1984 in an Ad in the 2008 Campaign Are… Democrats!
Barack Obama is reportedly not connected to this parody of Apple’s “1984” ad, slamming Hillary
That’s too bad, because it kinda kicks tushie.
It does indeed.
Love the IPOD they put on the hammer-chick, although one has to wonder how a little gal like her manages to toss what appears to be a 20 pound pound steel sledge hammer so damn far. She’s got plenty of upper body but it ain’t in the arms. Look at the pic below – those guns are skinny!
The Beast is a hulking brute of 250 and he knows (from experience) he couldn’t get one that high – got the stitches to prove it too.
***UPDATE: The first comment on this post (click on his name and you will be led to basically nothing) suggests this video did not come from BarackObama.Com. The Beast has reproduced the final frame below:
However, as stated above “Barack Obama is reportedly not connected to this parody of Apple’s “1984” ad”.
Mystery solved, the video did not come from Obama.com, it came from an “employee” at Bluestatedigital.com:
Our Statement On The 1984 Video
Statement from Thomas Gensemer, Managing Director, Blue State Digital
This afternoon, an employee at our firm, Phillip de Vellis, received a call from Arianna Huffington of “The Huffington Post” regarding the “1984” video currently circulating online. Initially, de Vellis refused to respond to her requests. He has since acknowledged to Blue State Digital that he was the creator of the video.
Pursuant to company policy regarding outside political work or commentary on behalf of our clients or otherwise, Mr. de Vellis has been terminated from Blue State Digital effective immediately.
Blue State Digital is under contract with the Obama Campaign for technology pursuits including software development and hosting. Additionally, one of our founding partners is on leave from the company to work directly for the campaign at headquarters.
However, Blue State Digital is not currently engaged in any relationship with the Obama Campaign for creative or non-technical services.
Mr. de Vellis created this video on his own time. It was done without the knowledge of management, and was in no way tied to his work at the firm or our formal engagement [on technology pursuits] with the Obama campaign.
I have spoken with David Plouffe, Sen. Obama’s campaign manager, to inform him of this action and am appreciative of his understanding and ongoing support of our work.
