So Microsoft released Windows Phone 7 last week. I've talked about the phone before. I was pretty disappointed with their ads though:

YouTube: Season of the Witch

I'm baffled. The way the ad looks to me someone was texting while driving and almost killed everyone in the commercial! And then everyone is too busy texting about it to notice each other...

It's time for a phone to save us from our phones is the big take-away line. The problem I see with this ad is that it condemns all phones as causing accidents and distracting people.

Microsoft: people love using their phones! I do, even my lousy Storm. Phones are distracting because they're good. Sell me a phone I want to use and does the things I need. In a way, I think that is what you're saying, but I'm seeing something different.
