Microsoft is going to run its first Super Bowl ad on Sunday during Seahawks vs Broncos NFL match. I was surprised to know that Microsoft has never took part in the famous Super Bowl marketing ads. This time, Microsoft is going to show an ad for Surface Pro device and how it is empowering people with disabilities. Former football player Steve Gleason uses Microsoft Surface to communicate and inspire others diagnosed with ALS. Watch the video above to know more.
Another ad might be just focused on Microsoft branding that it empowers people. Five year old Braylon O’Neill was born missing the tibia and fibula bones in both of his legs. Now, he’s making strides, pushing limits, and playing sports because of Microsoft technology.
It is good to see that Microsoft is taking efforts to remind people that they are still a key player in the technology world. Recently, Apple did a commercial for its iPad showing how people are using it in different ways, how it is helping people in their everyday lives, the impact iPad has on them, etc,. When I saw that commercial, my first thought was about Microsoft doing a similar ad. There would be millions of stories among people who were brought into technology revolution by Windows and Office from Microsoft. What do you think?
