Microsoft Pulls the Affliction Card. Again.

feedingamerica.preview.jpg.jpeg
What do Dean Cain, Bobcat Goldthwait, and a rotund man in a silver unitard all have in common? They are all part of Microsoft's latest Internet Explorer 8 campaign developed by Indiana-based advertising agency, Bradley and Montgomery.

If that pitch made you as almost-curious as it made us, check out browserforthebetter.com. Hopefully you'll have better luck than we did: the site demanded that we install Silverlight before divulging anything, and even after that, it still wouldn't relinquish its secrets.

So we had to hit up Ads of the World, where we found out the campaign is coloured by a series of PSA-style "Special Internet Service Announcements" targeted to people with internet afflictions.

So it's kinda like that HANDTOSS shit all over again. Microsoft, how one-trick-pony are you?
