The problem with Microsoft’s “I’m a PC” campaign

Mon, Nov 3, 2008

Featured, News

Whether you like Microsoft’s new ad campaign or not, user submitted content is always risky. Take the picture below for example. It’s an actual still from a multimedia “I’m a PC” ad that Microsoft is running across a variety of websites.

The caption for the photo is, “I’m a PC, and I live for today”. Uh, yeah, we can see that. Can you come up with a funnier one? How about, “I’m a PC, and I’m a Pervert.”

    Hi! I’m a PC andโ€ฆ Yes I know. But the snail was already taken by some Intel guy.

    Hi! I’m a PC and I’m riding Ellen Feiss. She’s cute, but kinda slow.

    Hi! I’m a PC and after a year running my new operating system, I snapped. When told about this, Daniel Lyons said that Vista had restored my sense of childlike wonder. Thatโ€™s a nice way to put it, right? And then, he stuck some more pins into his Steve Jobs voodoo doll.

    Hi! I’m a PC and when I heard about Windows 7, I decided to flee.

    Why is this guy a pervert? Because he’s on at a playground on a child’s toy? If the turtle were instead a young boy MAYBE I’d agree with you.

    Nah, this guys is just a silly mutha ucka.

    If you submitted an ad I’d bet it’d be I’m a PC and I have no sense of humor.

    Oh, brother.. people will see what they want just for the shock of it..

    The ad itself just falls flat on itself. For Microsoft, they should be embarrassed that their mega ad dollars bought them this.. yuck.

    this is an idiotic post trying to stir up some phony sense of outrage and just makes mac fanboys look childish

    Hi, I’m a PC and this is has to be the most asinine way to say you’re a Mac lover I’ve ever seen.

  23. Hippocrates Says:

    Who is the real pervert? The blogger or the guy in the picture?

  24. Robert Says:

    OK, which of you PCs circumcised that turtle???

  25. Neal Says:

    Hi, I’m a Mac and my biased opinion means nothing. Hell, since I’m such a fruit, I’ll probably vote for Obama and keep supporting mac and the mac operating system even though no one uses it and it will probably flop.

  26. loveprone Says:

    Funny..for Mac lovers?

    Banging this turtle like a screen door in a hurricane is nothing like the ride the blogger is gonna get on erection night! ๐Ÿ™‚

    How about I’m a PC and there is no butt in these jeans

  29. ntopics Says:

    I think this is a little strange that
    MS would use this picture. This
    picture tends to have Pedophile written
    over it.

    thanks from tony

  30. haha Says:

    LOL @ 2 comments up. take your thumb out of your pie and go hit your fanboy forums.

  31. Philbert Says:

    This is a stupid post. Sounds more like an apple fan getting desperate. The official caption makes perfect sense.

    Hi, I’m a PC… and I run Linux.

    “Im a PC and i have the mental age of a 4 year old”

  34. gansch Says:

    why do you feel the need to attack microsoft? is it because they are a corporation? (apple is too….) or because you attacking them makes you feel better about yourself and choice of computer?
    do somthing constructive with your life and grow up

  35. tim Says:

    Hi I’m a PC and I have a sense of humor about my OS and like options and the ability to take a joke!

  36. Gatz Says:


    seriously? Wow man “Lol turtle looks like a penis I’m a mac user I’m cool lololol” this is fucking idiotic. Now I don’t actually like windows but the fact that you choose a pic from a Windows commercial and bash it with sexual innuendo like a 14 year old really doesn’t reinforce the fact that you are trying to justify actually owning a mac at all guys, I mean not at all.

  37. bob Says:

    Maybe you’re right Gatz, but holly smokes that guy does have a huge green johnson between his legs. Whats totally surprising is that some marketing wank was too sexually repressed to have seen it

    Scroll up! its not like it wasnt completely obvious. Come to think of it,maybe this was some hilarious departure gift from the marketing wank that just quit his job and moved to Apple.

  38. Retromario Says:

    who cares. its funny. ๐Ÿ™‚


  39. TeleVision Spy Says:

    I’m a PC and I can be an apple as well because Apples are Personal Computers, but Apple doesn’t brand itself as a PC instead labelling the competition as PC and it is as just Apple.

    Yea the whole Apple vs PC thing is stupid because apple is a PC.

  40. TURTS Says:

    Ima PC and,MMMMMMMMm Cake!

    Apples are PCs too, rather they like to admit it or not.

    I’m a PC, because datacenters don’t run Mac OS

  51. HellBeNt Says:

    I hate those “I’m a PC commercials”. At first I thought it was another Mac commercial ripping on Vista but then I realized it was Microsoft ripping on itself. *rolls eyes*

  52. PC Says:

    I’m a PC, give me all of your memory!
    I’m a PC, and all your files belong to me now!
    I’m a PC, and if you want to work, get a MAC.
    I’m a PC, get over it.
    I’m a PC, i’m a sad, bloated, hack infested operating system that will never learn what usability and security really means.
    I’m a PC, i suck!

  57. Geebs Says:

    Erm…I’m a huge perv. I really had to reach to find a connection. Dude just seems to be riding the damn turtle. Giddyup, turtle.

    I’m a PC…because PC is NOT synonymous with any ONE operating system. Mac botched and MS followed suit. MS doesn’t make hardware…just software.

  58. Squirrel Says:

    “Hi, I’m a PC. And while my MAC counterparts are working their asses off to pay for their iconic, overpriced bits of hardware, I can breathe a little, and take solace in the fact that my pc is just as fast and even better at handling video playback, at half the cost. Have fun suckers! The playground is all mine!”

    “Hi I’m a PC and I have the syndrome of a down”

  62. Anonymous Says:

    Microsoft doesn’t even need to run ads. Apple has what, about 10% of the market share?? And out of that 10% how many were duped into buying a mac because of those stupid commercials that lie about Vista? News flash, Vista was never the problem, it was the 3rd party hardware and software. It’s like blaming your car for the potholes in the road.

  77. sabbott Says:

    Hi, I’m a PC and I couldn’t come up with an ad campaign because I’m a complete retard so I thought I’d just try to steal MAC’s, but look at this…my effort turned into a totally lame ad just like my product…(hangs head in shame) We will be back along with VISTA…err…what’s that new name these days?

  78. Andyroo Says:

    I’m laughing so hard at the VMWare Fusion add below the picture. “I’m a Mac. I can run Windows if I want. Suck it PC.”
