Microsoft Airs its First Ad for the Surface, And Well, It is Pretty Awesome

Microsoft Airs its First Ad for the Surface, And Well, It is Pretty Awesome

By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld)

Seems like just yesterday we were talking about Microsoft ads and how confused the company is... Well, someone over there at Redmond read the post and said "Not so fast, we have something better up our sleeves and no dude jumping from space is going to steal our thunder this time."

Microsoft released its first ad for the much-anticipated Surface tablet. So how is it? Thought you'd never ask. It is pretty great. It communicates what Microsoft should be communicating, i.e "We can be young and hip too. And gone are the days of us being just a software company making software that is the farthest thing from sexy. Here comes Windows 8 and the Surface."

Well, as reported, Microsoft will be spending well over a billion dollars on the marketing blitz for Windows 8 and if this ad is any indication, well, grab the popcorn, it should be a fun few months.

Anyway, the ad is entertaining, puts a smile on your face and yes, makes the Surface look like a device I want to buy. Right now.
