If I Have To See That Microsoft Teams Commercial One More Time...

There is nothing about that commercial that makes me want to use MT instead of FaceTime, or even Zoom. Are the people supposed to look smart? Are they aware that screen sharing technology has been around for over 15 years, and FaceTime is coming up on 10 years?

I swear that commercial plays every other commercial break on every network in prime time...

...end rant...

I haven't seen that one, but my favorite Microsoft commercials were the ones from some time ago touting how you could watch TV in a window on your computer like it was a massive breakthrough despite how that exact capability was available on many Macs ten or more years prior to that.

Maybe it's just me, but I find Microsoft's timing of running that particular ad to be
exploitative of our present situation. imho, it's a rather crass thing to do.

It has to be less annoying than the crap on some of the cable channels. Joe Namath pimping companies selling dubious Medicare Advantage plans, pretty much any other insurance ad exploiting the current situation by touting in the vaguest possible way “new benefits” available to people on Medicare, Tom Selleck’s nth rodeo pitch devoted to reverse mortgages, the various ads for incontinence products and urine wicking gizmos, ads for various prescription drugs, CPAP cleaners, etc.

I haven't seen the commercial, but most of these 'we are here for you in these times' could be branded as such.

Given there's probably still a lot of people who don't know about screen sharing or still think Face Time is magic, I can forgive MS (as though I have purview).

I was not a big fan of MS Teams even before these ads.
