Commercial about Mac

Did anyone happen to see new commercial with Bill Gates and Jerry Seinfeld? What did you think? I thought it looked kind of amateur. For two successful people to make such a commercial was certainly disappointing. Only my opinion. Would be curious to know what you thought?

Thanks

I think that's what they intended. It's just a "spoof" so to speak. It's not supposed to be serious at all......just "stupid funny" if that makes sense. It's not a serious commercial at all.

I never watch commercials so now I'm curious. Anyone care to explain this one?

I thought it was cute. No one screaming at me - just manchat, and the ending, Bill Gates wagging his tooshy!

2 superpowers on 'Joe Common Man' level.

I think it's hilarious. Does anyone really get the "shoe size" bit? The end step indicating the shoe was too tight. LOL. Loved it. Thanks

Best

YOU people are the very BEST ! In my small four cornered world of viewing the tv, I receive my explanation of one commercial! Who could beat that? No one! Thank you all for your opinions. They are so inspiring; makes me want to get better as I grow up. I show my ignorance but no one laughed. Thanks for understanding. Maybe one day someone will show you the same kind of time and knowledge you all gave me. (I even get to see commercial as much as I care to on You Tube. Now that is why I respect technology)

Grateful

I saw it last night.

Had absolutely NO IDEA what it was advertising.

Cute commercial, but a big waste of advertising dollars on me.

It's an ad for Microsoft. Notice the little Microsoft/Windows flag thing at the end and the conversation about Microsoft as they're leaving the store?
