Microsoft advertises for Mac
I’m sure by now almost all of you have seen the Microsoft “Laptop Hunters” commercials.
And for some reason, the Microsoft ad department keeps making these. The theme is simple. You have a limited budget, and you’re looking for a computer. But in almost every one of these ads, the consumer stops and looks longingly at the Macs before deciding, maybe PC is cheaper.
In the ad above, at :25 mark, the customer says “Mac’s are SOOOO sexy.”
Really? Congratulations Microsoft. You are now the dollar menu of computers. I get it. Macs are expensive, and they have a lot of unnecessary features. But are you really fighting Mac by having your commercial call them “sexy?”
Stay tuned, tomorrow I’m going to put together a list of the five worst commercials in recent memory.
