Bing Commercial - What the Hell Was That

Discussion in 'Bing' started by xtreme fever, Jun 17, 2009.

    A few days ago my girl and I were watching TV. A Bing commercial came on and after the commercial, my girl says, what the hell was that.

    I to make no sense of their commercials and think they are lame just like Bing itself.

    Because they are greedy and don't play well with others.

    Microsoft should stick to their operating systems because whenever they try to dominate something else they get dominated themselves. I do however love their operating so I dont hate microsoft =)

    Yea I was surprised by there commercial both versions of it that Ive seen also they could at least tried to make something that actually advertised their search engine instead of making it look like grabage basically which it is in the first place.

    I actually really thought the ads were creative, funny and relevant. Bing is not SEO unfriendly as they have already released an unlimited use API for keyword ranking (for your favorite software package or script). Bing is the culmination of years of research and the aquisition of the Powerset (semantic search) technology.

    I thought the commercials were funny enough to have them all my blog here (if you care): - All Bing Commercials

    I don't agree with you.
    I thought the commercial was pretty good, interesting and it makes you wonder what the hell is Bing?
    When you wonder, you usually go and see what it is.

    You might think the commercial is crap, but it made you visit Bing, didn't it?

    The Microsoft people are not dumb. They make commercials that are sure to attract people. Do you think the commercial was made just by some video editing team? I'm sure they've discussed the idea with psychologists and advertisement specialists to make it attract us.

    Nope, just makes me laugh that Microsoft is trying once again to fix something they can't. Their next 4 letter search engine should be fail.com

    Bing is sending me literally thousands of visitors so guess what? I love 'em.

    The purpose of the TV commercial is obvious. It is to make you remember the name!

    Its called link baiting and my guess is he/she gets some extra traffic to their blog from this.
