Microsoft + Quicksilver


I really like the style of the new Quicksilver commercial from the “Microsoft People Ready” campaign, created by JWT. I admit that I’m not a huge fan of Microsoft or their products, but I wanted to view the commercial again, so I logged on to Microsoft.com to find the ad. Ironically enough, I could not get the video to work, even after downloading their proprietary media player and using the Internet Explorer browser — so with such flawless technology, I’m sure this campaign will work like aces.

    I feel like it's a rip off of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmR0V6s3NKk

    When I first saw the commercials done in this style for Microsoft I was disgusted, and I still haven't shaken that feeling.

    Thanks for the link Jacqui; I had never seen the John Lennon video/animation before. There are certainly stylistic similarities between the two pieces, are they possibly created by the same artist?
