Seinfeld Ads Bomb

BREATHE A SIGH OF RELIEF everyone, Microsoft is expected to announce that it will be suspending its excrutiating ad campaign starring King of the Voles (Retd) Bill Gates and comedy has-been Jerry Seinfeld.

Microsoft clearly can’t hack the negative reaction it’s received as a comeuppance for the misinformed idea that this would actually work.

According to Valleywag, Seinfeld's agent says this was always intended to be just an introduction for the overall campaign – well we guess he'd say just about anything for his cut of the $10m fee.

Should go down as one of the great blunders in advertising.
What NOT to do!
