So far I thought that Microsoft‘s ads are first and foremost kitschy. Today, however, I have seen Office 2010: The Movie on youtube, and immediately I felt a slight shiver of excitement. Did Microsoft produce something interesting? Oh my God! It’s really good.
Right away I had to do it. I had to confront this production and previous Microsoft’s ads. And… well – I am surprised.
I need to say that that some of the movies that I found, are just… good. What happened? Is it a dream or what? Is my belief in the quality of Microsoft‘s ad was simply wrong?
Below I present Office 2010: The Movie and a few previous ads made by the Redmond Giant.
Office 2010: The Movie
other Microsoft’s ad
Windows Vista Wow!
bing: cell phone
bing: search overload
for my better feeling… some worse examples…
The first ever Microsoft Vista commercial
Windows XP – The Commercial That Started It All
New Family – Jerry Seinfeld and Bill Gates Ad
Microsoft Live Meeting
I’m a PC
bing: decision engine
and for the end – some historical ad…
Well, I want to withdraw from that, what I wrote a bit earlier. Sometimes Microsoft just has some better ads… but still most of them are not so good.
