Okay, we did get a glimpse of what the $30 Million deal with Jerry Seinfeld will do for Microsoft.
Here’s an obvious answer:
No matter how much you spend and no matter what kind of comedian you hire to whitewash the consumers, Vista is still the same and it simply sucks.
On top of that, these ads are really long and boring, completely opposite Mac ads. Now, I am not a supporter of Mac of Windows, just someone who has used all that and “knows” Vista does still suck and refuse to do anything with it except write truth about it.
Yes, the truth has been heard, this probably is better than their $30 Million ads. They should really have stopped at the Vista Mojave Experiment.
If Microsoft really want’s to compete with Apple’s Mac guy and PC guy ads, they’re going to have to realize that their ads can’t just be funny–they have to also give people reasons to use their products, whether that’s through pointing out features that the Mac doesn’t have or talking about Windows Media Center. I realize that Seinfeld built his career on a show that was “all about nothing”, but that’s not going to work for an advertising campaign.
