Surprise! New Windows 8 ads are actually funny
Microsoft is known make solid business software, it’s known to make the most popular operating system in the world and it is known for many more great things, but its marketing is usually not one of them. This time, though, with its new Windows 8 ads targeting China Microsoft is right on the money and the ads are plain hilarious.

You won’t hear much about Windows 8 features in the ads, but instead the messages of “Beautiful and fast,” “Work and play,” and “The power of touch” come across great.

The videos are absurd, crazy, creative and extremely funny. This is definitely the kind of marketing Windows 8 would make use of. Some of its features haven’t been met with a huge excitement, but those universal messages in the ads definitely come across. Check them out below.

Now these are the types of commercials Microsoft should have. They are exactly what the doctor ordered and are very funny even if you dont understand the language it translates. The first one had me rolling.

The slogan at the end of all of them should be "You'll like our tablets until you see it and use it."

@reluctant_human... I have no problems using w8. Got through it within a day and that's just using mouse. And to the complainers, i wonder how consumers knew how to use computers? Anyways hopefully the younger generation will learn to appreciate w8 more so than the older of this generation.

Its not an age thing and never has been. This is MS once again sticking to their hit then miss approach to Windows.

If w8 is good then why are so many people choosing the old version of windows to the new even though they made upgrading cheaper than ever?
