New Microsoft “Shoe Circus” ad starts the conversation

September 5, 2008

The Microsft ad titled “Shoe Circus” is definitely starting the conversation. If the objective was to get people talking, it is working. However, it appears that most of the comments are negative. Just check out some of the comments on YouTube, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_5ZLhBAlXyc.

The ad is engaging, although it’s long. I feel I must be missing something with the shoe that runs very tight. I am guessing the brilliant minds behind this at CP+B will make this a series of ads that begin to knit together and sell the benefits of Vista. I must admit, I never think of my computer as “moist and chewy like cakes so we can eat them.”

It caught my attention, and got me talking. Have talked to three people about it already and only saw it last night.
