Stupid MS Office ad in Arabic

Filed under: General — Tags: , , , — Khaled A. @ 2:20 pm

Speaking of silly ads, just what is Microsoft Saudi Arabia thinking with this advertisement for Office 2010.

If you care about Arabic speakers why don’t you make ARABIC OFFICE FOR MAC ALREADY?

    What the heck does Nabati poetry has to do with MS office? Even if this ad was 100 yrs old it would still be some piece of crap to me. And why do they shove in a photo of a girl for no reason? When on earth did girls at any time have any interest in nabati poetry? All arabic ads are stupid and meaningless. They should look at US ads, its legal to contest another product in the ad as long as it is honest and real. I think I won’t switch on my TV and never read any crappy arabic magazine. Plus no footnote…there never is in arabic ads! Which means they don’t give a rats ass if you phone the aftersales services and complain coz nobody gives a damn about your concerns or what you think.

    Sorry to comment again but I had another look, and seriously… I’d throw acid on my face if it was me in this ad. I wouldn’t stand living with such an ad with my picture in it. This is not stupid or retarded, its way worse than that…I have no words to describe it. I feel bad I wasted my time looking at this ad… Khaled, I feel sick. قال نبطي قال
