So it seems I wasn’t the only one that thought the new ad for Internet Explorer 8 was rank. As the article “Microsoft withdraws offending ‘puke ad’” details Microsoft has stopped promoting the ad.
In this day and age it is really hard to be funny without offending or alienating someone or something. Microsoft has not had much luck of late with its Seinfeld ads and now this, whereas Apple has been able to really milk Mac vs PC.
I wonder what Microsoft has in the wings for Windows 7? Seeing this kinda worries you a bit doesn’t it?
