They're ads.

You're supposed to ignore them, not post threads about them.

The point is it exists as an add not trying to push anything in particular, it's Microsoft jab at the way apple run their campaigns and it certainly beats condescending Mac ads in my opinion.

The fact is, Jerry Seinfeld isn't very funny or clever. He is not his hit show. It just has his name. To think this is a new low is ridiculous. He was always just a vehicle for great writers.

This time, the writers were not great.

Microsoft world domination.
Plan.
Step 1: Make a bad Ad. Have everyone on the "Net(z)" talk about said ad.
Step 2: Make a slightly better ad. Reveal a bit about your product. Your product will be "Uber".
Step 3: Let the emotional pot simmer for a while. Let people's mixed emotions torment their minds into a state of emotional weakness and insecurity.
Step 4: WOW fanbois and geeks alike with an Amazing ad that in their emotional state of weakness they will be compelled to praise as the second coming of Jesus. As such a world wide whore fest for this new microsoft product will occur only to have everyone a day later feeling dirty and unsatisfied after they realise it can't replace real love...

It's Itool (apple) marketing 101 transplanted onto a microsoft product...

sigh...

What choice do we have anyway? we'll buy their shit anyway, so ads are kinda pointless, especially cryptic series openers that leave you questioning.

Can anyone say coke zero??

Meh, can't somebody ELSE build a decent OS.. PLEASE somebody!!!

I think its an attempt to humanise Bill.

And be a bit out there.. but yah the writers have no idea how Llama it is. If the writers had a clue they would not have made the (Delicious Cake = MS Next) connection...

no if the writers had a clue or were net savy in any way, they would have known as we do that "The Cake is a Lie" hehehhe {:))

I've got to freaking idea. Maybe Bill wrote the script!? Its fails at being clever, funny or promotional.

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.



Thats not what it is.
If anyhtign its a 'delicious cake reference. AKA. CP.

but i doubt even that. I think its just jerry-humor and the link between food at the start and food at the end.

long ads need a linker, in this one id say its the food.
