Compaq, Intel and Hewlett Packard

Following on from my recent posting of the new Microsoft Adverts here link

I decided to have a look back through the archives to see if I could find any better adverts where famous people have been used to promote computer products on TV.

Here are the first couple of adverts I came across from the 1980’s starring John Cleese promoting Compaq

As with all this adverts I am including here I think they do a very good job of getting the message across, in a short space of time, unlike the recent Microsoft Adverts

This next one is more recent with famous people promoting Intel

As Jerry Seinfeld is in the new Microsoft Ad’s I thought it would be worth including this one that he did for HP

So come on Microsoft, you really could do something great with your adverts. Perhaps its time to rethink before you do any more
