Microsoft's Super Bowl commericals are right here, right now

Microsoft's Super Bowl commericals are right here, right now
Although Super Bowl 49 is hours away, Microsoft's ads for the game have already leaked. One spot features Estella Pyfrom, who brings technology to the kids who need it most, using her Brilliant Bus. The Bus is loaded with Microsoft products and is driven through communities where such technology isn't prevalent.

The second spot is about six year old Braylon O’Neill who was born without the tibia and fibula bones in both legs. Using Microsoft technology to analyze his gait, O'Neill uses prosthetics to help him play sports and to live a normal life.

The two ads don't focus on any particular Microsoft device and none are mentioned by name. Unlike many companies, Microsoft is using the large Super Bowl audience to promote the company's good intentions. Today's ads are about being a good corporate citizen.

You can catch both spots before they hit television screens around the world, by clicking on the video slideshow below.
