Bill and Jerry: Too Quirky for Quirky Suburbia?
Imagine it: two rich dudes, bunking in with a family straight out of Little Miss Sunshine. It's almost like when Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie lived on a farm, except more weird than entertaining.
But maybe I'm just reacting to the malicious geriatric.
Highlights of the vid: Gates and Seinfeld are bad tippers. And at some point they get accused of stealing a family knick-knack. At the end, Gates does a limp rendition of the robot and trots off after Seinfeld with his luggage, both in search of new "ordinary people" quests.
Cut to tagline. "Perpetually Connecting: PC." Awwww.
I can see this becoming a gimmick: Seinfeld asking an inane question, Gates busting loose with the limp noodle moves, traveling off into the sunset like rambling Bohemians with really cheap shoes.
This wasn't what I expected, and I
didn't like it much (actually, I liked it better after the third watch). Bill Green says he feels the campaign slowly building to something. That's cool and all -- but if the third misadventure doesn't bleed hilarity and/or make me want to buy, I don't know, a fucking ergonomic keyboard at least, I'm gonna be angry. Like, Halo angry.
