Comment A perversion of a great advertisement (Score 0, Troll) 401

I don't see how this is anything but a perversion of the excellent "1984".

A change to the voice over, and switching some faces? The parallel attempted to be drawn between Hilary Clinton and the authoritarian figure of the original advert is weak, gaining strength only from trying to force you to "see" a connection.

The following implication that Barack Obama is somehow fighting for free thought, as the sledgehammer-throwing-runner symbolizes in the original, is fairly ridiculous, and just reinforces my overall impression:

A weak showing, and a weaker story
