I know that some of you were traumatized by the first installment of this geek comedy duo. The second chapter of the Bill Gates and Jerry Seinfeld saga is much better. The best part? Bill Gates doing the robot. Once again, like Seinfeld’s show, it’s pretty much about nothing. There’s no MS stuff being sold here. Just good clean fun between two middle aged nerds trying to discover themselves by traveling this great land.
Remember how the Seinfeld show was a “Show about nothing”? Then at one point they even made fun of that fact on the show, by making a fake show within the show about…nothing. This first Bill Gates/Jerry Seinfeld ad is a lot like that. It makes no damn sense. It’s about nothing.
We can only hope that future ads make more sense. The only thing I really got out of this is that Microsoft may be up to something. And it may or may not be delicious. And that’s only because Bill Gates shook his ass. Kramer and George Costanza sure could have spiced things up on this one. Steve Ballmer could have been George. Not sure what they were going for here.
