    * bill seems to almost be pulling off an old woody allen type of thing
    reminded me of annie hall dinner table - where the old lady keeps seeing him dressed like a rabi  Wink

    The punchline is MUCH better in this commercial. I still stand by my prediction, that first one was purposefully terrible as a type of viral marketing. The next ones will be getting better and better and start making more sense and being more relevent.

    another cool thing is that - what they seem to have done is not steal the mac/pc apple thing - (though they did) but elevate it in a - humble way.

    i mean - justin long ... vs sienfeld?  hodsman vs gates?   ms has basically upped the anti by beating the characters were they were derived from = the real thing.

    it is brilliant after all.

    Well this is the LONG version, I am assuming there must be a SHORT version too!

    you know what it reminds me of?  Outland.

    Where the familiar characters of Bloom County - all "fell" into a weird new place.. called Outland

    The new strip didnt last long - was too weird. i loved it though




    I feel that same "vibe" with the 2 icons strolling through normal life - like above but backwords

    It's very entertaining. I wasn't expecting anything like this after seeing the first ad in the series and I'm now even more uncertain about what the next one will be, which is probably what the advertising agency was hoping for.

    The nice thing about these ads is that they are explaining the Windows story without involving any of the direct confrontation apparent in the Get a Mac commercials. Microsoft's advertisements come across as friendly, conversational and honest while Apple's seem sour and disconnected in comparison.
