Microsoft has released the second ad in its new campaign, and as expected, this latest skit makes almost as little sense as the previous one. It is longer, though, and it has more comedic elements than the first ad. The video shows Gates and Seinfeld attempting to live with a suburban family, complete with wacky hijinks and a crotchety mother-in-law.
Microsoft has loaded the piece up on YouTube, allowing folks to pass it around and conveniently embed it in news posts, like so:
According to a ZDNet report, the four-minute ad aired during CBS' reality TV show Big Brother. The site quotes a Microsoft spokesman as saying, "Very shortly, we will move into another phase of the campaign that will be about Windows." This third, less-nonsensical ad should air within "days," he adds.
