Here is Rick Santorum’s latest campaign ad “Rebellion,” a modern bigoted man’s knockoff of Apple’s famous “1984” ad, except that the girl who is supposed to be wearing hot pants is wearing mom jeans and instead of Apple’s old rainbow pride logo flashing up at the end it’s, ha ha, clips of Rick Santorum grinning wildly. Mitt Romney gets the starring role of “the establishment,” which in this version casts him as a mass murderer who telepathically orders his supporters to march to their deaths wearing blindfolds like some kind of Mormon Stalin. Rebel guerrilla leader Rick Santorum to the rescue!

So if hardline Catholic theocrat Rick Santorum is a rebel, let’s see… that would make the Pope, what, Che Guevara? Sure. That sounds right.

Here’s the original Apple “1984” ad for your compare and contrast essay in the comments section:

Anyhow, we’re guessing Santorum’s campaign is trying to copy the viral success of the 2007 pro-Obama “1984” spoof mocking Hillary Clinton, which means that Mitt Romney must now make the equivalent of this mind-shatteringly fantastic old Hillary ad in retaliation. [YouTube]
