MIcrosoft has had a rough run lately, what with Vista going face down in the cake and continued loss of market share in the Office, operating system, and browser arenas.
Their advertising campaigns have been as hard to figure out as deleting a folder in Vista due to the UAC controls. Their new ideas to pitch Internet Explorer 8 are no better, especially when the best they can come up with is a vomiting wife who is disgusted by the sick, twisted porn her husband views on his laptop.
Really - convince the dude to hide his browser history in IE8 as one of the benefits? That's what it has come to?

Update 7/4/09: Microsoft has pulled the offending ad after really catching it from the bloggers. Turns out it was directed by Bobcat Goldthwait. So, yeah.
