  Creepy GE Medical Software Commercial-Starring "Agent Smith" 
 Date Written

Uber creepy and disturbing new commercial...even though I'm a technologist.

Brought to mind many privacy concerns. Reminded me of "Brave New World" (Aldous Huxley) and "This Perfect Day" (Ira Levin)

Though it had a very funny/clever ending with "Agent Smith" offering a young patient two lollipops and posing the question to him, "Red or Blue?".

edit to correct and to add:
"Brave New World" for World State/Medical technology is supreme and used to create and condition population, and "This Perfect Day" for constant medical checks, permanent medical/ID bracelets, and regular mandatory drugging to keep populace under control.

edit to add:
I was really expecting they'd also bury a subliminal "White Rabbit" somewhere in the vid, but I never saw one.

1984...? By Aldous Huxley? ;)

Sorry, meant "Brave New World". Have no idea how it came out as "1984". Correcting in OP. Thanks for pointing it out.
