Sienfeld / Microsoft

Someone needs to fire their PR department.  Their new commercial says nothing other than the fact that Microsoft is out of ideas in it’s quest for world domination.  (And that thankfully even billions of dollars can’t stop Bill Gates from getting old and fat either)

  1. Yup, as Scott Lowe put it…

    “The New Microsoft-Seinfeld Ads…

    …are incredibly stupid. What in the world does watching Jerry Seinfeld help Bill Gates find a pair of shoes have to do with Windows? If Microsoft thinks that Jerry and Bill talking about churros and making Windows delicious is going to help improve Windows’ tarnished image, I’d say they need to fire the ad agency and try again.”

    I have yet to hear from anyone (who is not a Microserf) who actually thought it worked…

    I’m almost scared that you’re up this late as well.

    I’ve seen the press on the commercial, but I guess I had to see it before I would believe that any Ad firm would come up with such a craptastic campaign..

    Oh well – from the company that brought you Bob.

  3. Ah yes, poor old Microsoft Bob. 🙂

    But did you know they’ve actually sold millions of CDs with Bob on it… just in a slightly different umm “form” than you remember him: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/cc565089.aspx

    That’s so funny. An encrypted copy of Bob on every XP CD.

    It’s almost pathetic actually – that they still have it that is.
