"Hello! I'm a PC and I've been made into a stereotype!" exclaims a John Hodgman look alike in Microsoft's new spots.
MMA tough guy Rashad Evans is among the celebs as well as normal people to declare their love for the PC. Says Evans, "I'm a PC! YOU got a problem with that?!?" It seems pretty unlikely that Justin Long would manage more than a nervous squeak.

It seems that when an ad is so ambiguous that it is subject to rampant interpretation, it's not a well produced ad. Obviously most people are in serious disagreement about the meaning of this particular ad, so, I guess it's not a very good one. Also, IMO, Gates looked like an ass doing those robot gestures and was, generally, nerdy in his affectation. Seinfeld was, as usual, a pompous git. That's about all I have to say about those silly ads except that I hope we don't see anymore of them.

I don't understand why people are so quick to criticize something they admit they don't understand?
Why not instead comment on the merrits of its success or failure?
