Microsoft Goes for Less Stodgy Image by Giving $10 million to 54-year-old White Jewish Man
I love Jerry Seinfeld, but my kids zone out when his show comes on TV.
I don't see how Microsoft's getting him as their new ad man is going to make Microsoft more hip.
Mr. Seinfeld is 17 years older than John Hodgman, the guy who plays the stodgy PC guy in the great Mac vs. PC ads.
And, as public radio's Marketplace pointed out today, on the "Seinfeld" show, Jerry had a Mac.
