Another Reasons I’m a Mac Guy… pt2

I didn’t think that Microsoft could make a commercial that is WORSE than the first… or RELEASE one after all the bad press the first one received.

What were they thinking?  I hope there is some great creative answer forthcoming… a third installment that makes fun of the first two and makes a compelling sales pitch… something.  Because this is just painful!

  1. I’m kind of stunned. Connected? It felt like one of the richest men in the world and one of the highest paid comedians in the country are making fun of us regular schmucks.

    I’m kind of excited to see what apple comes out with now. This ad campaign is kind of like pitching underhanded to Babe Ruth.

  2. Hmmm. I have been a “Mac” guy since 1993 and I think the Gates/Seinfeld commercials are actually pretty funny. Is not going to make me run out and by a Windows machine, but was very amusing. Having dealt with both Microsoft and Apple for MANY things in education over the years, I can say that Microsoft is a great company to work with and very approachable. Apple, on the other hand, has been nothing but a pain to work with and have an attitude that I should thank them for such a wonderful product. Yes, I am a Mac guy, but that is only because they are the best right now. As SOON as something better comes along I am there 😀

    Anyway, I think Seinfeld is a smug guy, but what I have seen makes me laugh (but is not going to influence me to buy their products, so I am not sure what the point of the videos actually are…soften the image?)

  3. There is no bad press. Any attention is good attention and these commercials have created a lot of buzz about Microsoft. Wondering what they are up to, what’s next, etc. That’s what they’re doing. And obviously doing it well.
