Mailbag: Good Riddance, Seinfeld
Doug may be sad to see the Gates-Seinfeld commercials go, but James thinks the
whole endeavor was a failure from the get-go:
I saw the first commercial and thought, "Wow, that has to be the
lamest commercial I have ever seen! They should fire whichever agency sold
'em that load of crap." Then I saw the second commercial and I realized
why Vista sucks so bad. It's because Microsoft has a bunch of morons working
for it. If it can't see how lame those commercials were, they should all be
fired and bring in some people with enough sense to say, "Hey, those
commercials suck, let's go hire that company that made the Apple ads. At least
they have a sense of humor."
Now I hear that Microsoft is scrapping the Seinfeld commercials because
they "accomplished what they wanted," which I guess was proving
that MS is out of touch with reality. OK, so tell me another one. More like
Microsoft finally saw that people were only laughing at how ridiculous its
commercials were, especially compared to the Apple commercials (I thought
the latest one with PC in the pizza box was the best one so far). If MS doesn't
pull their collective heads out of their behinds, they are going to end up
digging such a deep hole, they will never be able to climb out of it.
