Hillary Clinton raised eyebrows with a somewhat surreal satellite appearance at the Democratic National Convention that drew remarkable parallels to Apple’s “1984” ad.
Clinton appeared on a giant screen toward the end of artist Alicia Keys’ performance to thank delegates for formally selecting her as the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee. Then, the screen showed glass breaking to reveal Clinton, a nod to her status as the first female major-party presidential nominee. It’s uncanny how much she channeled of the fictional Big Brother.
