A commercial about nothing

I wonder how many of my friends have seen the recent Bill Gates-Jerry Seinfeld Windows Vista commercials? I first saw them last week, but my mind is still reeling. They say any press is good press, but these are just bizarre. The product never makes an appearance, and the closest they get to talking about Windows is theorizing on whether future computers will be made of cake.

Then again, it's Jerry Seinfeld. What did I expect?

Maybe I should call upon the expertise of marketing extraordinaire, 2ndof5. So, 2nd, tell me, what do you think of those spots?

Unnatural selection

This man is either a genius or just plain crazy. Either way, I think he's my latest hero.

It's not likely that his work will change the world. But I can only hope that, when I retire, I can find something so fascinating to occupy my time.
