Jerry Seinfeld… you lost me here.

Those who know me, know that I am a huge fan of Seinfeld, but Jerry has lost me with his latest venture

Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT) has hired comedian Jerry Seinfeld to anchor a 0 million advertising campaign designed to burnish the image of its struggling Windows Vista franchise, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Microsoft seems to thing that Jerry will make people want Vista, do people really choose there OS cause they like the commercials?

The software maker is desperate to counter widely popular Apple ads that personify Vista as a bumbling, middle-manager type while portraying Apple’s Leopard OS as a cool hipster.

Then again for $10,000,000 I would pitch Vista 🙂

The newspaper, citing sources familiar with the arrangement, reported Thursday that Seinfeld will be paid $10 million for the work and that the campaign will launch on Sept. 4. T

    When last seen, Seinfeld was in one of those HP “waving hands” Minority-Report-style commercials.

    Ha… I want to see what MS will try to pitch with Jerry… they really don’t have value add over Mac. I really hope this doesn’t affect Jerry’s career (if it hasn’t already).
