Jerry Seinfeld and Bill Gates in New Microsoft Ads…

Here you can see the first two of a planned series of ads featuring Jerry Seinfeld and Bill Gates which aims to show what the Micrsoft brand has to offer.

Reactions have been sharply split between those who consider it pointless to those who appreciate the quirky humor you can see them for yourself here.

I do like the bit in the second one when the kid asks Bill when the new game they are playing will be released and he says never 🙂

Apparently the last one is Jerry’s final appearance people at Microsoft say that he was there in the first few warm up commercials only as part of their $300 million Vista ad campaign more featured ads are set to follow and a dedicated site has gone live to promote the campaign.

Apparently parents were shocked but there is nothing they can do about it 🙁

Personally I think we could maybe do a lot better things with the money and Sir David King on the BBC site sums it all up in this article.

The challenges of the 21st Century are qualitatively different from anything that we’ve had to face up to before, This requires a re-think of priorities in science and technology and a redrawing of our society’s inner attitudes towards science and technology.
