Is Microsoft’s ad too sick for YouTube?
Having recently been panned for its unsuccessful ads involving Jerry Seinfeld and founder Bill Gates, Microsoft’s marketing team has taken another hit with news that their latest online ad has had to be pulled off YouTube following complaints from users.
The controversial ad features Dean Cain, of Superman fame, and is directed by Bob Goldthwait –the guy who played Bobcat in the Police Academy films.
It’s already been pulled from YouTube but you can watch what all the fuss was about here.
What do you think of the ad? Does it warrant the public outcry? Or is it even funny?
