Humorous Windows 8 advertisement illustrates its simplicity

Microsoft has published a rather humorous advertisement on its YouTube channel, which illustrates just how simple Windows 8 is. Consumers are shown to be hovering around a Windows counter with a handful of demonstration PC units available.

An employee approaches said members of public to enquire if they require any assistance, which leads to a child to pop out with a stool to run the weary traveller through the delights of the new operating system. The video is recorded in Portugal and is in the native language with subtitles.

It's an interesting take on marketing the new product, since it is visually easier to use with huge typography and massive Live Tiles on a start screen. The added touch focused interface ensures that consumers feel at home when using a PC, tablet or a Windows Phone (which sports a similar UI).
