“DUETS” ad parodies Apple’s 1984 ad for some reason

“In a landscape where all music shows are the same… ONE will break through!”

I don’t know which is sadder – that ABC thinks its new music reality show DUETS is going to be so original and revolutionary that it deserves to be compared to the introduction of the Macintosh in 1984, or that we live in “a landscape” of more than one of these crappy kinds of shows. I’d like to give DUETS the benefit of the doubt, but given that their ad rips off an existing, famous ad (which itself parodied a fairly famous movie/book) AND given Apple’s ad has been parodied many times before, somehow I’m pessimistic towards DUETS bringing all that much originality to the genre.

    Not to mention the fact that Psych already had their fake duets reality show years ago.
