Microsoft Kylie


Kylie takes all the happy words about Windows 7 and makes them happier in her very own slideshow, using Microsoft Movie Maker. Happy words make happy pictures, helped out by a Bunny Pig, a unicorn, LOLCats and Bunny with Hat. Kylie’s final phrase, “I’m a PC and more happy is coming”, ties in with earlier and yet to come advertising campaigns.

Kylie is just 4 1/2 years old. Still a rookie on a PC, she color corrects and e-mails a photo of her pet fish, Dorothy, to her whole family. It’s that easy. See the ad online at Microsoft.
