I like the new Internet Explorer 8 short ads

These ads were done by advertising agency Bradley and Montgomery for Microsoft IE8. The videos can be seen on IE8’s promo site

I liked the offbeat humor that was used and the weird unusual approach in advertising a browser, a free browser that is. My favorite is S.H.Y.N.E.S.S,  watch out for the walking props man. really funny.

This last advertisement was pulled out by Microsoft  from their site after receiving a lot of complaints. Watch the video here, preferably while not eating or before eating something.

"We created the OMGIGP video as a tongue-in-cheek look at the InPrivate Browsing feature of Internet Explorer 8, using the same irreverent humor that our customers told us they liked about other components of the Internet Explorer 8 marketing campaign. While much of the feedback to this particular piece of creative was positive, some of our customers found it offensive, so we have removed it."

Even so, I still enjoyed the “puking” video. Weird and gross, but bizarrely funny.
