Epic Games Satirises Apple's 1984 Super Bowl Commercial
On August 13, Fortnite developer Epic Games released a parody of Apple's 1984 commercial that cast the launch of Macintosh personal computers. The parody is a payback regarding the removal of Fortnite from Apple's App Store concerning violation of in-app purchase guidelines. In the original version, Apple fought totalitarianism. The ripoff version has Apple as the antagonist where Epic Games defied Apple's monopoly.
