Jerry Seinfeld: A New Low
TheFrunj

Some of you might have heard that Seinfeld has been contracted by Microsoft to star in adverts for Windows. Well, his first one is finished:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rIjNJZpRtj8&feature=related

If someone can please post an explanation of what the hell is going on (if there's some kind of metaphor I'm not getting, or deeper meaning), because it seems pretty incomprehensible to me.

I for one like his TV series, but this is just horrible.

Explain away!

*edit*
Explain the video, not the reason he did it ;)

Seinfeld was a TV show about the most ordinary, mundane things with awesome writing that turned them into quirky, bizarre situations.

What's not to get?

Quite true and with Adobe especially, you can actually make your work copy right. Pretty sweet feature ay?

The discussion in the youtube link seem to cover the why well enough. Probably it was an ad about the Vista launch and how you have to work at breaking it in to get the most out of it.

The cake thing however was just random and it made my brain hurt. Wasn't my kind of funny. Portal has a lot to answer for with all this new geek cake humor.

Yeah, but in Microsoft's case, I'd suggest that an advert that totally misses the mark will be considered symptomatic of an operating system that, similarly, also misses the mark.
