If you have anyone you love in the room with you. Please send them out the room, as this is quite simply, BAD. :p

I just....threw up... lmfao. Omg I'm cringing so much right now :'(!

"well I used to open up the closet door. And struggle in the dark, well no more!"

Did that guy just come out on a Microsoft ad? Have I really just watched this much of this terrible ad? Will I ever recover from watching this ad? I just dont know :(

Oh God, I only lasted 46 seconds before I had to close it. Even that was enough to make me consider killing everyone.

Hah! That confirms it, then.. I've often felt that some advertisements were intentionally made to suck so that people would talk about it more.. And this cannot possibly be an attempt at a 'good' commercial :-/

What's with the MacBook badly covered with stickers to hide the Apple logo? :vlol:

You know what the worst part is? The guys starring the video are the ones who created the software :/

That made me go all suicidal.
That little girl's voice is so annoying. But then again, everyone is annoying in this commercial :p


"well I used to open up the closet door. And struggle in the dark, well no more!"

I actually thought the guy was going to say he realized he was gay thanks to Songsmith :rolleyes:

Ah ****! I can't stop singing that ****ty tune now.

Microsoft need lives. I think their trying to scam off iLife and it really won't work.

Also, does anyone else find it ironic that the laptop looks SO MUCH like a MacBook Pro? :vlol: And then that guy sits down with a bulky fat laptop. Yep, KC Mraz and Lew beat me to it XD

I think only people who are bored with everything, the older generation, and maybe annoying 8 year olds go on this...no disrespect to any of them...just don't play it when others are about...

...:p

What? What am I saying?
I only watched it for about 50 seconds _

Worst advert ever, I cringed so much. XD

28-01-09, 18:31
Omg, this is horrible :p I closed it after ~ 1 minute.

And I love the laptop's resemblance to the MacBook, like so many others have pointed out :D

28-01-09, 18:44
Oh. Dear. Lawd

What the hell did I just watch? Do you seriously mean to say that that was accepted by an advertising executive of Microsoft?

And that girl sounded like she had a dying rat stuck in her throat!

That ad is the definition of 'pathetic'. Notice that the laptop is a sleek Mac. Lol! Microsoft needs to get a life far away from computers. They fail at style and substance. The only thing I like from them is my Xbox 360.

OMG me too, they're hopeless at computers now but they're good at the Xbox, weird.

360 blows BTW. XP rox. Vista blows. PC platform rocks. MAC blows. M$ software blows though. :vlol:

That's so a macbook :vlol: it looks exactly like my moms macbook pro minus the stickers. I recognize the ports, speaker, and just the overall look of it also the power charger cord on the same laptop later in the video looks exactly like the one used for macbooks.

OMG. This ad is so bad... Big time. And this software, is so wrong, in so many ****ing ways.

Looks identical to a Sony Vaio to me you bunch of crazies.

The logo on a Viao or whatever it is called it longer than the sticker in the video so it wouldn't cover it as much and why would they block a viao logo?

Probably because the video isn't trying to advertise any brand of computer.
