Could someone tell me why Microsoft (with exception to that recent Nokia ad, which was good) consistently makes crappy ads? Why does Google seem to have the market cornered on excellent TV spots? If you’re going to spend hundreds of millions on these campaigns, why not throw a few extra bucks at finding better creative talent to brew up ads that don’t suck quite as much as this? What’s up with all the mediocrity?

Biographical info.. hmm. I have a history of not being able to strike the balance between what is "safe" to put into these forms and what is, in my mind at least, funny. Can't do it.


  1. worth noting that the A-list celeb they got for this ad, Rob Schneider, his famous tagline on SNL was “makin’ copies.” how apropos for microsoft.

  2. Hey Doug stop sucking on googles balls please. Why the hell are you such a fanatic over google I don’t know. They must be paying you to shit stop on Microsoft, its just real redundant.. If you like google, then that’s you, if others like ms then that’s them, this crazy shit over google and ms is nonsense..

  3. Foxledgend: Hey, I think it’s a valid observation and question, why are their ads mediocre. I expect more from Microsoft. It would be helpful, wouldn’t it, in getting more people to buy your phones and use your browser and cloud stuff with better ads.

    Do you know the answer? Or am I mistaking great ads for crap ads because of all the money I’m being paid by their competition?

    Microsoft and Nokia did make an ad that turned my head. I was impressed and posted it. I’ve been critical of Google plenty of times. But not with their ads, those tend to be pretty good.

  4. Ok I give you the benefit of the doubt,,I see your point, and yea its true lots of ms ads can be lots better just show way people would like in their products and skip the crap. But they were trying to be funny, adding a little humor, but truly a little corny. I always thought they need more knowledgeable people to get them better ads, but well..
