Monday Morning Gloombuster: The Revenge of the PC

It's the revenge of the PC. For all those who enjoyed the Mac Vs PC ads, at the expense of Microsoft, here's a chance to get the PC side of the story, if you are so inclined. After the Jerry Seinfeld commercial that was first widely awaited, then widely panned on the Internet, Microsoft has released this ad that features a whole "world" of PC users, challenging the stereotype of PC users being dull and disgruntled. The ad, created by Crispin Porter + Bogusky shows Bill Gates, Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria and her husband Tony Parker, besides a whole host of people who say they are proud to be PC users. 
The spot ends with Microsoft's new tagline: "Windows. Life without walls."
We won't tell you more about the commercial. Watch it here at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oshj4zEZlaU&eurl=http://www.brandrepublic.com/News/MostRead/847520/Microsoft-fights-back-against-Apples-PC-stereotype/
