New Microsoft 'I'm a PC' Ad Airs [Watch It]

Posted September 18, 2008 at 10:33pm by iClarified · 9886 views
Microsoft has aired its first 'I'm a PC' ads featuring numerous many different PC users stating 'I'm a PC and I......'

The new Microsoft commercial begins with a character who resembles John Hodgman (ie the PC character in the Apple 'Get A Mac' campaign). "Hello, I'm a PC," the engineer says, echoing Mr. Hodgman's recurring line, "and I've been made into a stereotype."

It continues by featuring numerous PC users including Bill Gates, Eva Longoria, Pharrell, and even Microsoft employees. At the end you see the message: Windows. Life Without Walls.

You can watch the new advertisement below!

Robert: My comment was not pointed at you. But now that you've raised the point, nothing about this ad is stolen. Apple started the mudslinging with the “I’m a PC” and “I’m a Mac” ads, but this ad does not sling back, in fact the Mac or Apple is not mentioned. They take the high road and only seek to break the stereotype Apple has been promoting about PC’s. The one character appears for about 7 sec. and the rest of the ad looks nothing like the Apple ad, so what’s stolen? If you can dish it you better be prepared to take it, but in this case they aren’t even throwing a punch.

Bah! Both MacOSX and Windows are basically the same thing. One has a taskbar, the other has a dock. One has menus on the windows, one has a menubar at the top. They run the same processors and GFX-cards. There really are only two differences; 1. it's a little easier to find your windows on MS Windows (no pun intended), 2. after 6 months to a year a PC becomes annoyingly slow and unresponsive and will need to be re-installed, while the Mac does not. Anyway, say what you will about this commercial, but one thing's for sure: it didn't make me want to go out and buy anything...
