Ok, we should have seen this one coming really – Microsoft are finally answering Apple’s awesome Get a Mac adverts. Its about time. I mean, Apple have been slating Microsoft for ages and ages without even so much as a sniff of a retort.
What’s interesting about this is not that they’ve enlisted Jerry Seinfeld but that Bill Gates himself will appear in the ads. You’re not helping yourselves Microsoft, you may as well get Balmer in there as well rapping about developers. Sad really.
I’m just wondering if they’ll be brave enough to play the same game as Apple and directly attack the opposition. I doubt it, but the $300 million they are throwing at the campaign should at least mean they’ll all make prime time TV.
We wait with baited breath!!
