The 45-second spot, which is modeled after Apple's iconic, Ridley Scott-directed "1984" commercial, stars a surly British judge who calls contestants "atrocious" and "horrendous," a flighty female who employs the well-worn adjective "pitchy," and a bald-headed, bespectacled African American man who says "dawg."
