Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is expected to release its much-anticipated Surface tablet this Friday, October 26th, and the tech world is clamoring. Could the tablet, which is already backordered in the U.S. and sold out in the U.K., look Apple’s iPad line square in the face? If sales were generated solely by advertising effectiveness, we’d have to give the “W” to Bill Gates and Co., as the company recently shook the advertising world with a TV spot that can only be described as “epic.”
The video, complete with a fair amount of dubstep and mid-air flips, has been deemed “most effective” tablet ad of the year by many pundits. Ace Metrix, the creator of the Ace Score, rated Microsoft’s Surface ad as the best of the year, higher than even Samsung’s Apple-bashing ads.
But enough of us talking. Enjoy the video, we sure did.
