Comic puts Taylor Swift's feud with Apple in the middle of Apple's classic Super Bowl ad
The comic references Apple's classic "1984" commercial for the Mac. Tim Cook is Big Brother, his face filling a giant screen. Taylor Swift is the girl with the sledgehammer that is used to destroy that screen. The implication is that Apple, with the introduction of the Mac, is eliminating the conformity being forced on the public by Big Brother (IBM and Microsoft).
Today's comic had two different ending panels. Before Apple reversed its position the screen on the last panel read, "On June 30th Apple will introduce its streaming music service. And you'll see why Taylor Swift's 1989 makes Apple look like it's from 1984." With the news that Apple has done a 180 degree turn, the last panel now reads, "On June 30th Apple will introduce its streaming music service. And you'll see why Taylor Swift's 1989 helped Apple from looking like it was from 1984."
