wtf's up with these jerry seinfeld and bill gates commercials recently? they start out with some random shit and at the end, pop out the windows logo.

the commercials are just awful, but at least you don't have to see the same one over and over...

i hope they don't bring back seinfeld and replace kramer with gates.

Bill doesn't even say much, he's like a robot. He's full of emotionless one-liners..

After apple threw such a jab at them with their hillarious commercials, I thought Microsoft's come back would be a triuphant one.

Well...it's certianly starting out suckishly. I hope they get better.

You can watch it on there website just search Seinfeld and vista and it should be the first one. In my opinion it starts off a little funny but quickly ruins all it's charm, and how does it have anything to do with a computer?

bah, there still better then those spit in your face I'm a giant douche mac commercials.

that's why he's not an actor...

and how does it have anything to do with a computer?

didn't gates quit microsoft a couple of months ago? now he's doing some charity thing, so this makes the commercial more confusing than it already is.

I dont know why, but i sort of like them. They should put out a sitcom together. XD

There are 3 parts. I just saw the 3rd part, they leave the family, the girl in the family set up jerry for clipping his toe-nails in her bed. I JUST SAW. Like literally, a half hour ago.

Jerry asks for another sign, and says, "do the robot if its going to happen"

and gates..does the robot. I hope they keep doing them. XD

It's like Seinfeld shorts.

Yeah, thats the vibe i was getting. Except, shot all hand cam and 'documentary' style. Wonder if Larry David had anything to do with them..? That'd be pretty awesome.

oh man! I must be missing one!? I saw the family one, with the stolen giraffe and churro / shoes one then they leave the family. Which one am i missin'!?

Those rich fucks came off as offensive to me in the commercial that takes place in the middle class home.

Maybe you should be on a hilarious and long running sitcom or perhaps build a multi-billion dollar computer bizz?

It was a very casual tone. Informative if anything. : D

OMG... I looked at Jerry Seinfeld and I thought, "He looks OOOOOOLD."
Then I realized how old I'm becoming.

Then I sulk for a minute and two, and abolish that in my mind...

Eh just because he's retired doesn't mean he's lost his celebrity status, and naturally they're going to use it. It's no different than when Colonel Sanders advertised for KFC after he sold the company. On another note since when do commercials have to make sense or even be good. They just have to sell a product, and the fact they've got you talking about it proves it's successful.

no, you fail, seinfeld rocked in the 90s and ended cuz they didnt want to be a show that ran on forever and stopped being funny, like that 70s show, simpsons, or family guy

come to think of it, i never seen a microsoft commercial before, but it still has to be appealing in some way. the only thing they have are two celebs, but other than that, they're just wasting money (maybe they feel like getting rid of some of it?). in any case, they didn't make we want to buy their product (even thought i'm not exactly sure what it is)

so how do i fail if i don't want them to keep the show going? no one wants to see something they watched a while ago get resurrected 50 years later. it would look all wrong.

Well I think it's generally marketed towards a demographic of people that tend to have money. (No offense but young people are broke as shit.) Baby boomers love billionaires, and they love Seinfeld. Even though you may not realize it you're probably running on some sort of Microsoft based software somewhere on something you own. They're a conglomerate, and a very sucessful one at that. They've dominated the OS market, and the gaming market. It's all fine and dandy I suppose. I'm sure in some way or another you've seen advertising for microsoft without even thinking about it. Hell even just seeing castle crashers banners on this site is in a small way selling X-Box 360's. It's all about the demographics.

I like Microsoft, but come on this commercial makes them look so bad. Maybe there is some hidden meaning I can't see, maybe the churro is a metaphor for something, I don't know! Microsoft, just make a normal commercial don't try and be artsy, cause you're not.

right. Macs are artsy. that's why their commercials are more successful.
