I just saw for the first time an ad for Windows7 on french television. Let me be clear : it's one of the most ridiculous ad for software I have seen in my geek's life. First the scenario is lame, really lame. It's a guy speaking in his house's garden, a tomato in hand and he has an idea. That idea materializes into windows7. And at the crowning moment, the guy says "With Windows7, I now feel safe". I did not jump on that myself but the person seated next to me (not a geek) reacted almost instantaneously to that message saying "Uuuh ? Now ??? So that means older versions of Windows were not safe ?".

Honestly, who made that ad and who validated it for release ? Wow... Just wow.
