New Microsoft in Life without Walls and a continuing debate.

19 09 2008

The debate about Microsoft’s CPB ads will continue. Were they a wonderful manipulation of the media? Did they know the general public would say WTF is this? then waver on good vs. bad ads, then “pull” Seinfeld because of it’s “unfavorable” reception? (We rogue agents didn’t hear too many unfavorable remarks).

Or, is Microsoft that out of touch? Certainly, Microsoft is a newbie to the humor game. CPB is not. Can a stodgy brand (as portrayed by Apple) come forth with $300M in media and have the right to make us laugh? Well, they did.

Here’s Conde Nast Portfolio’s take.

And, the new 60-second “life without walls” spot. It’s a wmv file.
