New Surface Ad Campaign Site

It appears the Surface has a new ad campaign website discoversurface.com under the theme of #Uncompromise.  The site features a new ad video along with tweets and instagram pictures under the hashtag #uncompromise.  The website currently features a half naked woman’s picture from instagram.  Part of the “#uncompromise” theme?

Story developing, more information as it comes.

The video itself has not been uploaded by an official Microsoft account, but by Mike MacCana.  MacCana is a former google engineer and most recently worked at Bazaarvoice which has been in the news lately over insider trading.  It is unclear at this time if MacCana is a current Microsoft employee or contractor working on the ad campaign.

    Site doesn’t seem to be available right now. At least access from my WP gets redirected to azure websites. Says site currently unavailable

      Also, the YouTube video referenced doesn’t work. Says removed by the user.

    it looks more like a response to MS’s Scroogled campaign by Google.

    It looks like it actually might just pull info from a user’s twitter or other account… I notice a few tiles referring to MacCana’s twitter account, so MS might not be posting pictures of women, but rather someone MacCana follows. Just a thought…
