It's a series. They're trying to get a guessing game going.

I think I'll have to see a few more before I can comment!

According to Microsoft:
"After seeing the new ad from Microsoft, which debuted today, some may wonder what Jerry Seinfeld helping Bill Gates pick out a new pair of shoes has to do with software. The answer, in the classic Seinfeld sense of the word, is nothing. Nevertheless, the spot is the first and most visible sign of an ambitious effort by Microsoft's Windows business to reconnect with consumers around the globe."

I think it is unnecessarily cryptic but somewhat funny, though I feel it is outdatedly Jerry Seinfeldish funny. Like Arvind says, may be they are making up a series. But this is actually nothing compared to Apple's Get a Mac ad. They are funny out of the box.

I actually thought that you were behind this idea of Microsoft ponying up for Jerry Seinfeld...

Sriram said...

I, you beat me to that comment.

btw, "nekku puriyalai nokku puriyaratho" should be nominated for the best-tag-ever award.
