Family Guy, marketing promotion, Microsoft, Windows 7
So long Stewie– we hardly knew you.
After viewing a taping of the upcoming episode it was supposed to sponsor as a marketing promotion for Windows 7, Microsoft has bowed out of the deal. I guess the humor was a little too edgy for Microsoft’s taste.
After the Bill Gates / Seinfeld ads, the OMGIGP web ads, the failed Windows 7 launch parties, and the grotesque Windows 7 Whopper, maybe someone at Microsoft figured out that its attempts to be hip and cool almost universally backfire and become fodder for contempt and ridicule from rivals.
