Microsoft Bores Us with First Vista Commercial

There are very few commercials out there that I like. Microsoft's new Vista ad isn't one of them. Aside from having a corporate propaganda kinda feel to it, it does nothing to sell me on the new OS. Rather than helping us "see the difference," it shows us a bunch of people parading back and forth with goofy smiles on their faces.

I'm not saying you have to sex up an ad to make it work (though it never hurts), but tell me why I should care about Vista. At least Windows 95 had the Rolling Stones' "Start Me Up," which was a nice way of highlighting the OS' new "Start" button. This Vista ad needs something like that. Some creativity. What do you guys think?
