You people have no sense of humour.

To all the wags on the net complaining about the Microsoft Seinfeld / Gates advertisements, I say “grow a sense of humour!”.  These advertisements are wonderfully absurd, from the idea of Bill Gates shopping in a discount shoe store, to the Mexican family talking about the Conquistador, referring to the shoes and not the man, to Seinfeld’s observations no showering while clothed.  The weakest piece, frankly, is the end.

No, it’s not Owen Wilson, or some piece of teen gross-out humour from Will Farrell.  It’s actually funny.  I can hardly wait to see the rest.

But then again, I grew up on Monty Python, Mr. Bean, Peter Cooke, Laurel and Hardy, Terry Gilliam, and Peter Sellers.

    Not sure how funny it is, but it sure makes me feel old.

    Hmm.. I am reserving judgment, it was entertaining – but trying to do 'Apple' might backfire.

    The 300M might have been better spent on lobbyists.
