The First Bill Gates + Jerry Seinfeld Microsoft Ad Makes No Sense

Besides the slick and probably expensive editing designed to make Jerry Seinfeld look like the more awkward of the pair, there's not a whole lot of special effects in this clip. In fact, there's not really a whole lot of anything, including laughs, information or pimping of Vista. It's kinda like Seinfeld's really long, really rambling Superman ad for Amex he did a few years back. We hope the rest of the campaign is better.

They did get Bill Gates to use his mug shot somewhere in the spot (not spoiling it by saying where), but other than that we're underwhelmed. Here's what we took away from it: Bill Gates's jiggling arse is moist and tasty. Don't ask us now, watch the clip and you'll see. [Thanks mbaronny!]


    That was awful.... looks more like they are trying to work on Bill's PR by making him look humble in an everyday store and actually carrying loyalty points than promote one of the world's largest software companies flagship software. I guess that's the joke, right?

    I thought it was quite clever. I enjoyed it!


    5 Macs and No PC's.

    Jerry: I'm a Mac

    Bill: and I'm a PC

    I hate it! lame and not funny
