Microsoft Songsmith ad features MacBook Pro

MB Pro in Microsoft ad

As the 'I'm a PC' and 'Get a Mac' ad campaigns continue to battle, Microsoft appears to have presented a MacBook Pro in an online promotion for its Songsmith software. The notebook is cleverly disguised with flower stickers, including a decal placed over the Apple logo, although part of the fruit's white stem can still be seen. Although MacBooks can run Windows, the intense rivalry between the two companies would seemingly encourage the ad agency to choose amongst other computer manufacturers.

The ads include a father and daughter singing, followed by inspired coffee-shop customers and finally a song with the wife. The same computer is featured in several of the videos, although a character brings in a different notebook part-way through the 'Everyone Has a Song Inside' clip. [Via Yahoo News]

    No wonder...

    This little experimental video proves why it's no wonder that Microsoft finds itself as the punchline in so many jokes.

    I know a few people that have bought Macs with no interest in OS X and run full time with Windows. The best install experience I ever had with Windows Xp was with my Macbook Pro. The driver setup from teh Leopard DVD was so dam easy it pains me why other PC's can't make it as simple.

    I think this was the most pathetic video I've ever seen. It was so cheesy and so poorly done. It was god awful. This was way worse than your typical home video.

    Proving once again

    that "microsoft technology" is an oxymoron.
