Last night I was in the kitchen, then Reena called me in for a new Bill Gates / Windows commercial. I ran in just as it started… so what the heck was it all about!?! For those of you that haven’t seen it yet, watch it now, then proceed with the post.
So… what was that all about? Besides a Mega-BILLIONAIRE hanging out with a MEGA-Millionaire… and a mega billion dollar company spending big bucks on a 1:30 second commercial… which seemed like a mini movie trailer. While many viewers were probably left scratching their heads and saying “WTF was that!“… others have their own opinions. For those not interested in reading into it all too much, this commercial was the first of a series (just like the “I’m a Mac/PC Commercials”)… from Microsoft and their $300 million campaign for Windows.
As the commercial comes to an end, Seinfeld asks Gates if Microsoft will “come out with something that makes our computers moist and chewy like cake so we can just eat them while we’re working.” Gates wiggles his rear to answer in the affirmative. The commercial ends with the Windows logo and the phrase “Delicious.”
What is this hinting?… probably in the area that Microsoft still has a few tricks up their sleeves and that they will still be around for years and years to come. With FireFox and Apple gaining market share every day, and the new release of Google Chrome… Microsoft has plenty to worry about, but they are so huge in size, they have the man power and money to make things happen. In the meantime, we will all have to wait for those moist and chewy computers to come out.
What did you think of the commercial and is this your first time seeing it?
