Finally, a good Microsoft ad
A couple of years ago someone was impersonating the Macalope on Twitter before giving up shortly after the horny one opened up his own account. The impostor’s last post was this:
Wow. New Microsoft ads are very good. I’m scratching my antlers trying to think of something negative to say.
First of all, you don’t scratch the antlers. Antlers don’t itch. Second, haha, it’s funny because the Macalope is just a Microsoft nay-sayer blah blah blah. Third, those ads — the “take back the ‘I’m a PC guy’!” ads — were truly horrible and the Macalope easily found something negative to say about them.
Fast forward to this year when the brown and furry one has been positive about Microsoft’s efforts with Windows Phone 7 and really likes the first ad.
It may not be perfect as John Gruber notes, but it’s a) a funny jab at how much time people spend on their phones and b) a suggestion that you can do what you want to do on a Windows Phone 7 faster and get back to your loved ones.
Is that true? Maybe. It’s certainly what they tried to do with the phone, we’ll see if they pulled it off. Seems like it’s going to be a little hard without multitasking and cut-and-paste at least.
