Epic has released an amazing if somewhat obvious video parody of Apple’s iconic “1984” advertisement for the original Mac in which it recasts Apple as Big Brother and a Fortnite character as the hero.

“Epic Games has defied the App Store Monopoly,” the ad notes. “In retaliation, Apple is blocking Fortnite from a billion devices. Join the fight to stop 2020 from becoming ‘1994’.”

Brilliant.
