Default Microsoft's Seinfeld second ad doesn't just feel long...

It is long.

I saw this today. Liked it but can't see myself seeing it more than maybe 2 times. Doubt the networks will just show it a few. We're going to see it over and over. Just like those Orkin pest commercials they show during dinner hour..

NBC will show it over and over again in hopes of recovering ratings from the glory days of the Seinfeld era.

Makes the hipster/ scenester look lame comparatively; which is really the goal.

MS bought the name "zune phone" and some other names that were similar... they announced about 3-4 months ago that the Zune phone was researched, but decided against in favor of further developing mobile windows technology... aka, functioning true plug and play rather then jump through the hoops of DRM.

who knows.

Yeah- too long for TV, but definitely entertaining. Gates does a pretty good "straight guy" to Seinfeld's more over-the-top delivery.

It will be called Xphone and I bet will be the mobile communication device of the modern era... hence all the hints at "connecting people" - at least that is my theory

This one made a little more sense than the first but still at the end the only thing I have to say is "Why? A 2 second ad that screams "BUY MICROSOFT!" would be more effective
