ABC Parodies Apple's 1984 Commercial for 'Duets' Ad [Video]

ABC has parodied Apple's famous 1984 commercial and mocked American Idol in an advertisement for its upcoming 'Duets' TV show.

"Duets" is a one of a kind singing competition that takes the Superstars out from the judge's panel and onto the stage. Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Nettles, Lionel Richie, and Robin Thicke will individually set out on a journey across America looking for undiscovered talent worthy to be their protégés. Ultimately, each Superstar will choose two singers to be their duet partners. Together, the Superstar and their protégé will take the stage each week and perform in front of a live studio audience. In the end, only one duet will be at the top of the charts and the winning amateur will receive a recording contract with Hollywood Records. Television personality Quddus, best known from his days as the host of MTV's "Total Request Live," will host the series.

Take a look at the ad below...

Same here I have never seen it. If the site isn't working for you, go find your news some where else. We are getting this information and site for free. So show some respect.

Late Breaking News? iClarified must be asleep at the wheel. This commerical has been airing across the country (USA) for the past 2 weeks. There's no sense telling everyone about something they already know about. How about telling us how Apple's going to be releasing a new phone soon?
