Mary Jo Foley posted a summary of the first Microsoft advertisement that played during tonight’s NFL game. Her full blog posting can be found at For those of you that want to see the video, here it is:

Anyway, I must agree. While it did have an old Seinfeld humorous twist, it didn’t really advertise the company. What did you think? On a scale of 1-10 where 10 is the best, I’d give it a 4. There was no negativity towards Apple which is a plus, but the lack of Microsoft products being pushed kept it below a 5.

UPDATE: Now that I think about it more, I’m sure the upcoming advertisements will have to relate to this one in some sense. If not, it’s a waste of $300 million that could have been spent on improving some products.
