The First Bill Gates + Jerry Seinfeld Microsoft Ad Makes No Sense

Besides the slick and probably expensive editing designed to make Jerry Seinfeld look like the more awkward of the pair, there's not a whole lot of special effects in this clip. In fact, there's not really a whole lot of anything, including laughs, information or pimping of Vista. It's kinda like Seinfeld's really long, really rambling Superman ad for Amex he did a few years back. We hope the rest of the campaign is better. They did get Bill Gates to use his mug shot somewhere in the spot (not spoiling it by saying where), but other than that we're underwhelmed. Here's what we took away from it: Bill Gates's jiggling ass is moist and tasty. Don't ask us now, watch the clip and you'll see. [Thanks mbaronny!]

I loved Seinfeld, but without Larry David, Jerry Seinfeld himself sort of loses his edge, I think because he doesn't make fun of himself as much as he would on the show.

As for this commercial, I just can't hate it. I wasn't sure what to make of it, but the sheer randomness actually made me say "WTF....but I'm fuckin' smiling!"
