Gates, Seinfeld to appear in mew Microsoft ads


As part of a new advertising strategy, Microsoft has enlisted Bill Gates and comedian Jerry Seinfeld to appear in a new commercial as part of their $300 million campaign to change their image.

The first commercial will likely air beginning on September 4th and push the “Windows, not walls” concept.

The campaign will be one of the largest every ran by Microsoft and is said to be a response to Apple’s “Get a Mac” ads which have done very well for Apple with their spring computer sales up 41% over the same time last year.
