The Microsoft Commercials

Microsoft has been getting a lot of crap for their new Ad campaign with Jerry Seinfeld and Bill Gates.  At first it seemed like they were really going nowhere and they were commercials about nothing like the show about nothing.  What’s funny is, their campaign is working.  It’s drawing attention and everyone is talking about it even though everyone seemed to hate it.

There is no such thing as bad publicity.

The Windows Vista Blog posted a message a few days ago to let everyone know that the new ads without Jerry are not a vote of no confidence, they’ve been a part of the plan all along.

After Microsoft’s announcement I felt I needed to see for myself.  They’re on the ball with this one, they’re showing how they connect millions billions of different people world wide.  I think the campaign will only get better, and it should since they’ve spent millions on redefining their image.

See for yourself:

Stuffed Monkeys

Every time this commercial comes on TV and I’m within 50 feet of Rachel she hits my arm and tells me to watch. I’m not joking, every time. I’m hoping that maybe if I share it here and admit that ‘yes dear its cute’ she’ll let my shoulder recover.

Giants & Kina Win

In case you live under a rock the Giants won the Superbowl tonight in what could be called the greatest Superbowl of all time. An 83 yard drive to win it in the last 3 minutes of the fourth quarter. A few (12) Phenomenal plays by Eli Manning brought him home to mamma as the second brother in as many years with the trophy and the MVP award. Mamma must be proud, the Giants fans sure are. Final Score 17 to 14 Giants. Way to ruin a perfect 18 in 0 season Patriots.

If you tuned out during the commercials this year, or were hitting the keg, don’t worry you didn’t miss much. Well, except this little gem by Doritos:

For those of you who have been following Kina Grannis (or any of the other contestants) in the Crash The SuperBowl contest, She Won! I’m happy for her. From unknown to household name in only a few weeks thanks to her Two Weeks for Kina campaign. Her Superbowl spot is below:
