I thought the same thing. But it is Microsoft, and Windows 8 is a bit more of a gamble than usual so they probably justified it very simply: we have the cash, let's make sure people know about our latest endeavour.

In the United States, the Empire State Building in New York City was lit to match the colors of the Windows logo.[2] In Canada, a 328 ft (100 m) banner was hung from the top of the CN Tower in Toronto. Copies of The Times were available for free in the United Kingdom where Microsoft paid for 1.5 million issues (twice the daily circulation at the time).
