Did anybody even understand the Sienfeld/Gates MS commercial last night?

Because I did not.

I'm guessing that they are going to use Bill Gates as the face of Microsoft. The ad was funny and lighthearted. I think they are trying to downplay Microsoft's "Evil Empire" rap.

Expect some divorce papers to be leaked soon.

See, Seinfeld had a show which no one understood, and millions loved. Gates has an operating system no one understands, but could be sold to millions if Seinfeld says it's okay to buy things you don't understand. I think.

I looked up at the tv from the computer and saw Seinfeld and thought, "I was discussing Seinfeld in a thread on Bikeforums today" and went back to the computer...

Was Gates in it too?

I got that Bill Gates has problems with his undies riding up.
I already knew that Jerry Seinfeld was an annoying twit.

Gates was in your computer, causing it to act like Kramer. Seinfeld was on Bikeforums, causing it to act like Vista.

Seems like the "churros" they were eating throughout the commercial got more interest ... (or maybe I'm hungry and haven't eaten breakfast yet )

Here it is


And if you google it ---- it seems that there's more than a few who are either scratching their heads and wondering what it was supposed to mean - or others who stated that it's just plain not funny.

Me neither too, but at the end of the commercial I spotted the back end of a Ducati ST parked between two cars, so I was happy.
