There certainly has been a lot of heated discussion about Microsoft's latest "You find it, you keep it" Laptop Hunters ad campaign.

First came Lauren.

Then came Giampaolo.

Then came Lisa and Jackson.

Obviously nothing serious (or PC, in this sense of the term) in the parody, short of the clip's authors playing with the idea of a "real person" buying a PC, rather than a paid actor. It's as if someone followed Adrian Kingsley-Hughes' ad roadmap, no?

Still, don't pay it too much mind. This from the minds behind "Even I think I suck, by PC."

But it certainly does show that people are paying attention. Maybe the Microsoft ads are working after all.
