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?

It's as Monica told Chandler in that Friends episode where they were getting their fertility tests; "... Honey, and i say this in the sweetest way possible, nobody's gonna wanna see that!"

Microsoft just can't seem to get a leg up on the advertising front. It's ads with Jerry, Eva, Bill etc etc was considered a flop with Microsoft being accused of trying too hard. Now its been called vulgar! Either Microsoft is extremely unsure of its identity or its agency partners can't get it together!

I think that's good because we like to watch different and funny things and it is one of them, I'm really grateful with that.
