Microsoft has pulled the plug, apparently. Because spending $300 million on a nonsensical ad campaign that has convinced zero people to switch to Windows was just bound to work.
New ads, featuring various Microsoft users as well as celebrities including Eva Longoria and Pharell Williams, started running this week. The company says the Jerry/Bill campaign was just "phase one," but Seinfeld will not be appearing again, at least for now.
But still, the original campaign lasted just two weeks. Even the Ron Silver "His Father is the District Attorney!" show lasted longer than that.Posted by Stephen Silver at September 19, 2008 01:04 AM
