    Microsofts new ad campaign.


    Microsoft aired the first ad in it's $300 million+ campaign to give the company's image a much needed makeover.



    The only thing that ad will do to the company's image is show they know how to waste money on crap ads

    Sorry guys but I think that ad ageny seen you coming.

    Keep Seinfeld, drop Gates and get some other comedian and it will work. Gate's too stiff for funny comercials.

    I think you should rename this thread:

    "Microsoft launches new era of cake based computing"

    I think this is the funniest microsoft commercial ever!

    I thought this was alright, actually. I think the editing needed some work at the beginning...it was a bit amateur - but it kept me watching.

    Here's a followup ad:

    I think they are just amazing.

    The first one was ok, but the second full one on windows.com or when they split it up on tv was done very well.

    The point is to get people talking about Microsoft again. Having an Ad telling people to buy Windows is not really something I would think they would want to shoot for because if you are looking for a computer its already installed unless you buy a mac.

    I think they just want people to keep mental note about Microsoft and that it adapts to your life and you don't need a Mac!

    They are a heck of a lot better than those gay Mac vs. PC ad's.

    These Ad's have really not been done before in this fashion where it really does not explain anything, but everyone knows its about Microsoft!
