Microsoft's new commercial for Windows Phone airs Monday night and our loyal readers are going to love it. It features a wedding where one side of the aisle is made up of Apple iPhone 5 users while the other side is using the Samsung Galaxy S III. One iPhone owner asks someone with the Samsung model to move his enormous phone. To a middle-aged woman holding an iPhone, someone asks, "Aren't you a little young to have an iPhone?" Ba-Zinga! Another woman says "Autocorrect this," and wallops a guy in the face. The battle is on.
As Android and iOS fans duke it out, a couple of wedding workers are standing apart from the melee. They are both clutching the Nokia Lumia 920, one in yellow and the other in red. The tag line of "Don't fight, switch" caps off the ad.
It's a brilliant move by Microsoft because it places Windows Phone as being above the fray. And with the ad clearly aimed at smartphone fanatics, perhaps there will be some switching taking place after all.
