In its third week in the wild, Microsoft's outwardly pointless advertisements will tonight be making their first statement, and it's one we're now familiar with: I'm a PC.

“I'm a PC: Pride”
“I'm a PC: Not Alone”
“I'm a PC: Stereotype”

Depends on how you look at it. If you can see the subtle message presented, they are pretty good.

I think they are pretty good. They're taking that stereotype Apple has developed and turning into something positive.

A let me tell you. After watching them, it seems like Microsoft is punching Apple back hard.

*Microsoft Slaps Apple*
Finally, Microsoft has risen to the challenge, ready for Win7 I bet
Adverts are now getting much better, a few more, and you have won me over in the ad war :P

I'm sitting here wondering to myself, why they (Or we for that matter) never thought of this sooner :P


I AM A PC, and I do not wear a suit and a tie.

The message is pretty clear.

A commercial doesn't need to be humorous I don't think that was there purpose there software programmers not comedians ;)

They're trying to combat the stereotypes apple is creating.

Check this out! It's really PRICELESS!
"One problem with the campaign’s credibility: the ad work was created using Macs."

(Please do not bash me. :D I am a windows user but the story (if true) is really funny/hypocrite!)

Well...while embarassing, it doesn't really mean much.


That same program works just as well under Windows, and, correct me if I am wrong, an outside firm handled all that stuff.

Much ado about nothing, as far as I am concered.
