Microsoft counts the votes, names the winning Windows Phone commercial

Last week Microsoft asked you to vote for which Windows Phone commercial from NFL Quarterback Cam Newton should air during the NFC Championship pre-game show. You had the choice of four endings to the commercial using a different catch phrase at the end.

The "Peanut Butter, Jelly" version, shown above was the runner-up and will air during both the NFC and AFC Championship games.

If you're the type who would rather tune in this Sunday, January 21st, during the pre-Game show and see which version won, don't stray any further. If you can't stand the anticipation, you can find the winning version after the break.

Still think they should have had a War Eagle version....

and your winning version is "Poundcake, French Fries"!

  • That's the one I liked...
  • I really hope this marketing is getting through; I have seen an increase of WP in the wild since WP8 launched but not enough to make me believe that MS is eating into the market share.  Guess time will tell!
  • Agreed
  • The thing is, you can't use your personal experience as any indicator of how well a platform is doing. Thats anecdotal..
  • Wait PBJ was the Runner up but will air?  Which one Won though? Am I just tripping?
  • I guess pound cake, French fries won and pbj was runner up? Here's the blog
  • Well, on a related note, GOOOO FALCONS!!!
  • Lol!
  • FALCONS!!!!!
  • Falcons motto the past several years. Rose up / fell down.
  • Atlanta cowboys will choke again.
  • Don't you dare compare us to the cowboys! We got this!
  • Well its ironic he cites Xbox gaming as a plus when we all know the service is pretty lackluster on WP so far and probably for a while to come with the rumoured defocusing of Xbox on WP.
  • Aww, no French fries...
  • That was the one that won...
  • Why does the WP app show the pbj one?
  • This cam person sucks. Should show another wp commercial instead.
  • It is the FBL, they should have just thrown up one of those 2 minute videos super-ads they have on their YouTube Page. Lord knows they can afford it like a million times over.
  • Nobody's going to pay attention for two minutes. Its gotta be short, you're in and you're out.
  • We need a commercial on the Superbowl...
  • I'm confused. So does this mean PC&FF will air during the Super Bowl or something?
  • Did you read the article? Will be played this weekend during the AFC and NFC playoffs... Says so in the article
  • No it states the PB & J one will air during the playoffs. The winning commercial it says will air during pre game, which seems a little odd.
  • PB&J was WAY funnier.
  • I read it also and it doesn't make sense. When will the winning commercial air?
  • This is off subject, but does anybody think that Asus might be making a Surface branded WP device?? I know this sounds strange, as I do from time to time, but considering the recent articles about Asus and MS in talks about a device... Well it may be possible..
  • stupid.
  • Nice ad
