Last night Microsoft began running their new ad campaign which is poised to "engage consumers and spark a new conversation about Windows – a conversation that will evolve as the campaign progresses, but will always be marked by humor and humanity.” [Via Techcrunch]

The first ad  follows Jerry Seinfeld and Bill Gates as they shop for a pair of shoes. There is only a small mention of Microsoft at the end of the ad. Oh, and Seinfeld eats a churro. (Oops, sorry, spoiler alert.)

Discount shoes + churros=comedy gold. Right?

Perhaps Microsoft is feeling the need to amp up their ad campaign due to the popularity of Apple's Mac vs. PC ads, but we'll have to see if this helps them sell more copies of Vista.

Watch the ad for yourself and see what you think.

Are ads a deciding factor for you when it comes to  purchasing computers and gadgets?
