Seinfeld, Gates Microsoft Ads Yanked

Now you see those Microsoft TV commercials starring Bill Gates and Jerry Seinfeld -- and now you don't. The ads have disappeared from the airwaves and the reason why is a matter of dispute. Full Story

I think they spent too much to get Seinfeld and not enough to get a decent script. It wasnt funny, it wasnt Jerry funny and he didnt look like he enjoyed it much at all.
And their "I'm a PC" commercials are annoying, they obviously still dont get it.

I don't know what the purpose of them was, although they somewhat reminded me of Paris Hilton and her BFF.
I'll be sorry to see them go. However, I do have one question, just what do Jerry and Bill have in common??????
Money.

While I don't think the ads were horrible, I just couldn't understand why Jerry Seinfeld was suddenly appearing in a television commercial with Bill Gates as it didn't make sense. If you're a fan of "Seinfeld", you'll have noticed that Jerry very clearly had an Apple Mac computer (I believe it was a Macintosh II) in his apartment. If you haven't noticed, catch an episode and look, as if you'd walked through his apartment's front door and turned right. There's the Mac, right on his desk.

The next thing you know, we'll be seeing Sarah Jessica Parker putting aside her near-iconic Macintosh PowerBook from "Sex In The City" and doing ads with Bill. I certainly hope that won't be the case....

It was pretty neat to see one of the world's richest showing that he's just like everyone else. Have you ever noticed that he NEVER flaunts his wealth, seems like a pretty cool dude. If this was a black dude, he'd be trying to show off (and I emphasize SHOW OFF) a gold watch, diamonds in his ape-ears, big fancy yet tacky car, gold chains, gold tooth, rings, etc. Ever notice in music videos how thugs HAVE to include their cars, house, jewelry in the video? It just screams "I'm a thug, I'm betta than you, I gots lots o' money, I have to show it all off to prove that I'm betta than you..." please, what a bunch of porch monkeys.

Jerry Seinfeld hasnt been funny since Seinfeld was canceled, and even then I didnt think he was that funny. The other characters like Kramer, and George's parents were the funniest ones. I think Seinfeld is one of the most overrated comics, who had a good producer Larry Craig, and good supporting cast, that made the show what it was.

I have no beef with Bill Gates, he seems like a good guy.

I like the commercials. Yes there were off the beaten path of the usual brain less commercials. Makes you wonder if Bill Gates is really stiff?!
Bring them back!

I agree!

Seinfeld is just another jew whos sucess lies in the fact other jews promoted his not funny, no talent azz. The rest of the cast carried his stupid show. Hes also a pedophile. Idlove to sock him right in that arrogant shyt talking yap.
