Second Microsoft Seinfeld Ad Lies

Nevermind that Microsoft’s second ad with Bill Gates and Jerry Seinfeld stretches through five minutes of utter pointlessness. They flat-out lie towards the end. Twice.

First, Gates claims he’s “connected over a billion people.” Nonsense. Gates was famously late to the Internet.

Second, Seinfeld claims Gates will make possible an “amoeba with a blog.” Ha! The world’s most popular blogging platforms don’t even come from Microsoft.

Not only does this ad fail to make a point, it weakly tries to imply two invalid points as an afterthought. $300 million well spent, Microsoft.

    Looks like Microsoft took the hint. They’re canceling the Seinfeld ads tomorrow.
