Microsoft pulls "fly on the wall" iPhone parody ads
0. phoneArena 15 Sep 2013, 15:05 posted on
Microsoft has had trouble recently with its ads. Occasionally, the crew from Redmond will come up with an interesting commercial that resonates well; but, more often the company will create an add that is at best uninteresting and misleading, and at worst just flat out bad. It seems that many believe Microsoft's latest attempt at parody with its "fly on the wall at Cupertino" ads have fallen into the second category...

You said it the best..they Are Very Pathetic....
And I never own nor do I want a Iphone, but this is so childish and Pathetic, and on top of that, not even funny!!
The Only way MS will beat IOS or Android, is if these companies would allow MS to insert a terrible CEO like Nokia did..SMH.

Agreed, this ad wasn't even funny, IMO

This is one of the saddest ad's I've seen and what makes it worst is that there is a high chance that, some of those concept where discussed in the board room.

Who exactly is the Microsoft spokesman/representative that officially commented on pulling this official ad?

They should spend more time on showing off their own products rather then seemingly advertise for google and apple

I could have sworn someone said it wasn't from Microsoft and it was just a video floating around YouTube...

Okay, come on.... Really, oh so easily offended everyone? Like Apple's sales/feelings are at risk here?? Yes, I am a MS products fan, but funny is funny. This was a good SNL skit.
I brought up the "I am a mac, I am a PC" commercials recently, and still laughed at those. This was no worse. All Apple did was poke fun at MS product launches.

Microsoft sucks! The iPhones business bigger than Microsofts entire business!

All the iMedia on the barricades to protect Apple.

Isn't he Steve Jobs? From behind he looks like him and not Tim.

This was hard to watch. They should go talk to Nokia, maybe they'll learn something.
