Microsoft and Cuteness

While cruising around YouTube today I found an old news story on the release of Windows 95 and when the video got to the :48 mark I was reminded of the Kylie commercials for Windows 7. Seems Microsoft has a record of using ultra cute kids for their commercials. I have no problem with this at all but I just found it interesting.

This is the Windows 95 coverage. If you skip to the :48 second mark this is where the little girl starts.

This next video is from the Windows 7 commercials.

Anyway I just thought this was quite interesting that they seemed to have gone back and used what was presumably a really successful ad campaign for  Windows 95. Cuteness sells.
