Hey, you know that Microsoft commercial that they reportedly paid Jerry Seinfeld $10M to be in?
It’s about shoes.
And it’s stupid.
I am LOVING my Mac, you guys. Soooo much better than my PCs with Windows. Like, head and shoulders above.
But, anyway, if you wanna hear Microsoft’s side of the story:
So whatâ€™s the deal? In an email weâ€™ve obtained from Microsoft SVP Bill Veghte to all employees, he talks about the goals of the campaign. The overall goal is to inspire consumers and â€œtell the story of how Windows enables a billion people around the globe to do more with their lives today.â€ This first phase, he says, â€œis designed to engage consumers and spark a new conversation about Windows â€“ a conversation that will evolve as the campaign progresses, but will always be marked by humor and humanity.â€
The ads are just an icebreaker, he ads, to reintroduce Microsoft to consumers. Later this month theyâ€™ll do a deeper dive, which I assume means talking about features.
I still think Microsoft sucks (reminder: Vista crashed on me FOUR TIMES the first — and only! — night I used it) and I love my Mac.
