The guy is shown to be fighting the system by using the Xoom, in contrast to the legion of white-hooded apple zombies, but the inadvertent message is "Fight enslavement by this huge corporation by buying the products of this other huge corporation".
** Which is exactly the same BrokenAesop Apple delivers in the original 1984 commercial. Fair is fair.

* Creator/KarlMarx's personal motto was "De omnibus dubitandum" which is Latin for "Doubt everything". This was widely known and followed by communists of all persuasions and variants, who never once thought about doubting themselves or doubting Marx.

** An example would be in the [[Literature/SwordOfTruth novels of Terry Goodkind]], where the main character effectively ends up as a benevolent capitalist dictator, the series having explored the weaknesses of all other forms of government. The last chapter of the series features that character ''ordering his followers'', ironically enough, to no longer do the devotion, a ritual that has over time turned the heads of his family into objects of a cult of personality.
