We Were Tricked Into Showing You Advertising For Free

Perhaps the genius of Crispin Porter + Bogusky's bizarre Jerry Seinfeld and Bill Gates commercials is that they were just so bloggable when they actual released the real advertising all the sad, young bloggers were forced to follow up on those too.

The latest ads hit YouTube yesterday, and we're not buying Valleywag's report that this was some sort of back up campaign after every one found the Seinfeld ads too weird. This wasn't cobbled together in CP + B's grandma's garage over the weekend. The ads are a bit of a jab at Apple's PC vs Mac ads, with PC users (including Eva Longoria and Tony Parker) proudly saying, "I'm a PC."
