ABC Rips Off Apple’s “1984” Commericial To Get You To Watch To Kelly Clarkson [Video]



American television has been infested with ridiculous singing shows – American Idol, The Voice, X Factor, Sing Off, and now Duets. It’s become too much. Why won’t everyone just enjoy watching Walter White run his meth empire instead? I dunno, but the newest singing show, Duets, is looking to set themselves apart from other shows by ripping off Apple’s classic ‘1984’ commercial in order to get people to plop down and listen to Kelly Clarkson screech for two hours. Sounds like a great marketing plan.

Oh, and they got Jennifer Nettles to join the show too. I guess Toni Basil wasn’t available.
