Motorola XOOM 1984

A parody of Apple's own parody advert (made in 1984 to support the release of the original Mac computer), this ad for Moto's Android tablet shows a grim, conformist future where worker drones march to the beat of their ubiquitous white earbuds. Except our hero, who fights the status quo and wins the heart of his true love with the use of his XOOM tablet. Shortly after the end of this video, he and the girl are lobotomised by the thought police and the XOOM is smashed to bits in the basement of the Ministry of Truth.
