Microsoft will air it’s first ad for its Surface tablet this evening in the United States.

The ad will air during Monday Night Football on ESPN. The Surface campaign is the second ad in the sequence after the Windows 8 Countdown commercials.

This marks the next step in Microsoft’s marketing blitz — which will reportedly cost the company over $1 billion.

  1. Awesome! It seems that not only is Microsoft totally revamping their approach to software and hardware, but also revamping their approach to marketing. Makes them look young, vibrant and strong enough to put the competition back in it’s place 😉

  2. Personally I liked the first commercial much better…

  3. It looks great! Really gives a fresh air to all new Microsoft products.

  4. What does it all mean? That I’ll dance and prance and smooch on campus if I buy a Surface? I don’t want to imitate American Idol competitors. I want to know what I can do with a Surface should I decide to fork over the cash to buy one. Why must advertising be so superficial? What’s in a name? Surface and superficial are semantically close, but dancing and prancing with an expensive tablet is dangerous and might be expensive.

  5. hmm. i wanted to like it but it’s a little outdated with the whole percussion thing. Aside from the haircut of the main guy it could’ve come out of the 90s

  6. Loving this ad! Very fun and cool especially the crumping. I am really loving this because it depicts the effect the surface will have on its users. Hopefully that is. I must say, its the first I been stoked about any hardware since MacBook pro.

  7. I dont liked it…………………..
    because it doesnot tell anything about its features

  8. I want one!!! I have customers all around the globe. I would be ecstatic to brag on this!!! Sign me up!!!

  9. Will definately get this device will then decided if I give away my Ipad, Onoura you seem like you dont like it, I personally think you dont like W8 at all, why are you blogging for Windows anyways you should rather blog for Apple, I’m yet to see a blog that doensn’t raises question about windows credibility.

  10. I am waiting for it to come to The Netherlands. Not sure though, MS Netherlands doesn’t say anything about it.

  11. I don’t have a tablet yet…. Looking hard at this

  12. This a commercial that Fred Astaire would have mad. It is pathetic and means nothing except as an advert for the netbooks or whatever they are. It is the biggest mistake that microsoft has ever made. In the UK and the rest of Europe, this advert will turn more people off than dog poo on you shoe. Why can’t I, in the UK buy 8?? Everytime I put my post code in it tells me I am not in the right postal area. I am being discriminated against.
    I get enough of that being in my wheelchair and being 67 computer geeks think I know nothing.
    I run a Registered Charity 1108688 in the UK and there are parts of 8 that would make our work much easier. It seems microsoft wants to make more money out of all the people in Europe. Get off your horse and drink your milk microsoft.

  13. the microsoft surface is out of this world. that device is ama zing
