Personal PC Store In the House
Microsoft has launched Personal PC Store, a new advertising campaign expanding on the “I’m a PC” approach developed by Crispin Porter + Bogusky. The Personal PC Store campaign features real couples with outdated PCs who have Microsoft set up a personal store in their home. The first television commercial, “Julie,” introduces us to a woman who doesn’t want a new computer because she doesn’t believe “there’s something out there better than what I’ve got now.” After learning about the different PC options available to her, she chooses a PC running Windows 7. The new ads feature several different PCs from a variety of vendors, including Sony, HP, Samsung, Lenovo, Acer and Asus, and invites viewers to a site, www.windows.com/newpc. The campaign is supported by print activity running in titles including The Times, The Guardian and Metro, with online ads running until September.
