And Your Microsoft Spokesperson Is...
With the news that '90s icon and TV syndication legend Jerry Seinfeld is going
to help Microsoft try
to rescue Vista
, we asked you this week to name your ideal Microsoft spokesperson.
Here's what we got:
Brad gets us off to a potentially controversial start:
"I suggest one word, or really one letter: W. After all, he'll be
looking for work, anyway. Maybe the copy could read something like
this: Hi, do you know me? Or maybe I should ask, 'Do you loathe me?' As the
leader of the free world, I had to make some tough, unpopular decisions. So
that's why Microsoft asked me to be their spokesman..."
Brad, we try to stay apolitical here at RCPU, aside from when we're blasting
the European Union (and we figure that it's fair game). So, without making
a political comment, we'll just say...we love this and find it hilarious. Tough,
unpopular decisions, indeed. He'd certainly get attention.
Sam chimes in with an interesting prospect:
"Morgan Freeman. Why not? He has 'The Bucket List,' and he has been
Hmm, now that's intriguing. Seinfeld might be a relic these days, but Morgan
Freeman has a certain aura of timelessness and that familiar voice. He also
inspires a sense of confidence and familiarity that Vista could use. (Although
it strikes us that he's surely doing lots of voice-overs already.) We're still
sort of leaning toward W, though, with Brad as script writer.
Finally, Richard has a one-word answer: "Satan."
Heh, well, Richard, your e-mail made us laugh out loud. That's got to be worth
something. We're not sure what, exactly...but something. Anyway, thanks to all
of y'all for taking the time to respond.
Have any more suggestions? Keep sending them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
