Microsoft signs Seinfeld

Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer must be tired of seeing the "I'm a Mac, I'm a PC" ads from Apple that portray PC as a fat, middle aged, balding person. They've brought out a big gun to combat this pop culture phenomenon of an ad though: his name is Jerry Seinfeld.

Microsoft really are serious about finally burying the cool Mac guy and the dopey PC guy ads. Hiring Jerry Seinfeld to do their latest commercial is said to have set the Redmond, Washington, based company back a hefty US$300 million the Wall Street Journal reports. Seinfeld will be one of the key personalities involved and will appear next to Bill Gates in the ads.
