Yep! :roll:

I still watch the re-runs even though I've seen them a million times! Obviously with this ad campaign coming out, I'm not alone!:)
you can look at porn. you can check stock quotes! i think it is the episode where george gets sucked into selling computers over the phone for his dad. and he has to beat loyd. i guess that is the "serenity now, insanity later" episode.

Yeah that's the one. Then Kramer goes beserk and destroys all the computers after the neighborhood children push him a bit to far. :laugh: Great episode.

I would say the same, however, there are 2 things you left out in your post.1,...$10 Million Dollars, 2... Jerry Seinfeld. I have never seen a $10 million dollar ad campaign with Jerry Seinfeld promoting a patched piece of software. Hmmm how many copies of Vista to make up 10 million?
I'm not saying Jerry won't be good advertisement, I'm saying the actual impact of this advertising will be minimal.

Really...What my point is...Windows should have done this immediately from launch. Once the census about a product has reached it becomes extremely hard to change peoples' mind. The technical term for this is called Accommodation. Anyone who knows anything about Accommodation knows that it's extremely hard to change existing ideas to accommodate new info. It actually takes therapy.

Maybe Microsoft should mix in Dr. Phil with Jerry.

I wouldn't be surprised if Apple got Chris Rock...

You can always watch them online, on some video blog even if MS doesn't host it on one of its own sites (the way Apple did/does).
It's not that I want to watch it, I'm just wondering if they will consider airing it in India.
Mac's have started coming here recently.

anyone remember the seinfeld episode where he goes to buy a new computer? "porn-quotes"
GD, you had to go & make me remember that. The first time I watch it, it had me rolling for nearly an hour after it was over.

I'm sure that's where Billy got his inspiration from (if it wasn't all the HP ads :rolleyes:) Its all the better for MS anyway. All those GD mac ads always leave me with a feeling of bloodlust for some reason :shadedshu
