Please, no need to thank me.
It has been reported that Microsoft has decided to pull the Bill Gates-Jerry Seinfeld ads from the air after two versions have been aired for about two weeks.
Now, if I was Bill O'Reilly, I would take credit for shaming Microsoft into getting this crap off the air. But I am not Bill O'Reilly, and I thank God for that nearly every day.
To my credit, I ragged on some awful Viagra ads, but they disappeared before I did the ragging.
It wasn't the merciless 'splainin' of the awful suckitude that killed these ads and made the ten million dollars paid to Jerry Seinfeld one of the worst business decisions in this year of truly awful business decisions. It was the suckitude itself. I was but one man in a mighty army of haters of these commercials.
So please, there's no need to thank me. It's just me doing my job.
The one I don't get paid for. That I do out of the goodness of my heart.
