The Future is Delicious

The future is delicious according to Bill Gates. Microsoft just released the first add with Bill Gates and Jerry Seinfeld.

While it's not as laugh out loud funny as the I'm a Mac, I'm a PC adds there are some moments. Like when Gates holds up his Shoe Circus Clown Card and his photo is his mug shot photo! Steve Jobs would never be so self deprecating or get caught speeding in a Porch 911.

TechCrunch has a good article on the subject and cites an internal Microsoft email that mentions that this is only the first in a series of adds that will reintroduce people to Microsoft.

I know everyone is totally dumping on this add, but lets wait till be see the whole campaign before we torpedo it.

  1. thanks for posting it. hehe. i liked it. i thought it was funny and clever… also, that mug shot is just priceless. hehe… i love how he's all smiling in that mug shot. hehe.

  2. I read a good post on this commercial on a blog this morning – they made the point that by not making this one about Microsoft, they're familiarizing the "characters" to viewers without making it feel like they're shoving MS down the viewers' throats. Just like the Mac commercials, people will start to stop what they're doing and pay attention to followup commercials once they recognize "Oh Hey, it's another Microsoft funny commercial!"

  3. i wish i was a millionaire in my 30s. hehe.i read that he'd paid his bail in cash outta his wallet. hehe. man. i can't imagine being that flush with cash. even now. i would never carry $1000 in cash. ever. hehe.
