Windows Phone 7 Ads Show, Errr, You'll Be Using Their Phones Less...

Illustration for article titled Windows Phone 7 Ads Show, Errr, Youll Be Using Their Phones Less...

Microsoft is no stranger to odd advertising. While I do get what they're trying to say with their two latest WP7 ads (showing the HTC Mondrian), the message still aims left of what they're trying to achieve.

Take a look at the ads below and tell me I'm not imagining things. Sure, I may spend a lot of time stroking the screen of my HTC Desire, or scrolling up and down on my BlackBerry Bold, but that's usually because I enjoy doing so. I could easily put the phones down and get on with my life, like I'm sure many others could. Will Microsoft's phones not be able to captivate me in similar ways? [WMPowerUser]

Arggh! there goes a...snake a snake!

The first commercial isn't good but the second one is actually pretty amusing. I'm not sure why there are so many people in the comments who are getting upset about this? Is it just anti-Microsoft sentiment or are you those people that MS is making fun of in these commercials and now you are getting offended?
