Humor: Microsoft Hires Comedians

I am not making this up:

WSJ: Microsoft using Seinfeld as Vista pitchman in $300 million ad campaign

"Comedian Jerry Seinfeld will headline Microsoft's upcoming $300 million Windows Vista ad campaign, along with Chairman Bill Gates, according to anonymous sources quoted in The Wall Street Journal.

"Seinfeld will get $10 million for his work on the campaign, whose slogan is along the lines of "Windows, Not Walls.""

What could be more appropriate than using professional comedians as Vista pitchmen? I wish they'd use Judy Tenuta- now that would be ads that bite.

Thanks to Jose_ X for finding this story.
