Microsoft launches two “humorous” Office 365 ads
Microsoft uploaded two Office 365 commercials to YouTube. The short ads look to educate potential users on 365's accessibility (“anywhere and on any device”) and secure cloud syncing. The clips have a humorous tone to them, which is in lieu with Microsoft's recent attempts to look “more fun, even if production-oriented”.

Are the ads really funny? Well, let's just say that they are better than “Click it and i Note it”. The ads have a couple of cringe-worthy moments and acting, and we're not sure if they will succeed in creating new Office 365 converts.

Sure, the clips are not abysmal, and maybe there are much worse things on the air these days, but we tend to hold companies of Microsoft's scope to high standards. Take a look, tell us what you think.

They're each contain a nugget of information and they made me smile. No need for PA to get snarky just because they aren't iArty.
