I rarely share my thoughts on the Internet. Because A: I don't think that anybody cares. And B: I don't think my thoughts are very interesting. So if you think: "Oh noes, not another internet-rant!" then just close the window and do something productive. Like picking your nose or something...
But just a few days ago I saw something that...well...could be the worst commercial in the history of Commercials. Not because it's idiotic. Not because it treats us like mindless sheeps that only exist to consume stuff (99,9% of all commercials do that). No, it's the blalantly Level of retardation we have reached.
Now I have studied media education, so I'm somehow interested in how commercials work. And of course I think todays commercials are complete and utter bullshit. But that's also the reason why I'm not rich and we get shitty commercials. But this specific commercial...wow...this one takes the cake!
I'm talking about the new Microsoft Windows 10-commercial. In case you haven't seen it (if you live under a ROCK)
Link in case the video isn't working: www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUdzxR…
Now what is so bad about this commercial? Aside from the fact that it treats us like a retard? Perhaps that it could be a commercial for free medicare. Or some aid group. You know, those useless folk who actually HELP PEOPLE!
But not Microsoft, no Sirs! "These kids will never have to remember a passwort, because their smile while be enough".
It's basically: These Kids will never now hardship, hunger, war and Syphilis because Windows 10 has arrived to help us to emerge from our self-imposed immaturity (Kant-quote for the win!)
Now I know: Microsoft didn't make that commercial. They paid some overpriced media Company to do it for them. But for FUCK'S SAKE, next time don't re-write an add for UNICEF!
It's bad enought that Apple is it's own church and Amazon wants to conquer the world, but the future of the children everywhere will not get better once we all bought Windows 10!
And before you ask: I'm probably going to get Windows 10 next week, but with a fist full of rage. Now who's the victim, huh Microsoft?
And yes, I totally want a Xbox One, thanks for asking!
So: do you have any commercial that makes or made you gag? I would totally like to know.
