The "I'm a PC" ads are much improved over the Seinfeld ad!
The Seinfeld ad was funny and quirky, but really failed to get the message
across. I like how the "I'm a PC" ad directly addresses the Apple
commercial. It does a nice job of eliminating the spin Apple tries to put
on PC users as un-cool, nerdy business types. It effectively shows that a
wide variety of people in a wide variety of scenarios choose to rely on Windows-based
PCs because they do work super-well, regardless of the Apple spin. Why Microsoft
did not do this from the start is puzzling! Is this commercial 3.0? It must
be, because MS finally got it right!
The Mojave Experiment commercial and Web site is also a good effort to
calm the Vista misconception storm. Bravo, MS! Your marketing efforts are
looking much, much better now!
I'm a PC for now...but just out of necessity!
I wonder if Microsoft is having problems with its ad campaign because
most of the creative minds in the advertising industry use Macs. It just seems
like millions of dollars should be able to buy higher-quality ads than what
we've seen. I guess we could give Microsoft the benefit of the doubt and maybe,
just maybe, it's saving the best for last.
I don't see the "I'm a PC" ads as defensive, but rather as mocking.
MS took the bull by the horns -- a gutsy move, in my book.
The latest MS ads are even more reason to buy Mac. Keep up the good work,
MS! The world is laughing at you. Doesn't Microsoft know that "PC"
equals "Piece of Crap"?
The one where the "regular Joe" people are shown the "Mojave
Experiment" then told it's Vista...they must have pulled those morons
out of the Mojave. If they didn't know Vista and how badly it sucks, why should
they have any credibility?
