North Pole Pool Party Windows Phone 8 commercial

Microsoft recently published a video on its Windows Phone YouTube channel that featured Misfit Toys and 'Bumble' (The Abominable Snow Monster of the North) for a new Windows Phone 8 commercial. The team is back with another festive themed commercial featuring not only the Snow Monster, but Santa Clause who is enjoying a quick dip before the mad rush to deliver presents to kids around the world.

Using his Windows Phone, Santa is able to keep track of all the missed calls and messages from members of his team, while also keeping tabs on naught / nice kids with an updating Live Tile. A message is then sent to the Head Elf - "Need more toys". It's a jolly, simple advert that is clearly aimed at a slightly younger audience. With the Kid's Corner functionality, Windows Phone is a great solution for children entertainment.

  • And the Christmas ads come pouring in. Lets do this Microsoft!
  • Funny
  • Awsome on Microsoft there idea is great
  • I actually don't mind it at all, pretty cool.
  • Santa knows what's up! :)
  • Love these ads.
  • A+ Microsoft for the media backing you guys are putting into WP
  • Come on, Microsoft! Get this on every commercial break! :)
  • Windows phone are selling like hotcakes. It will sell twice more during holidays. People are finally realizing the power of wp8 and are finally seeing boring iphone and android
  • Yet they tease us with all these phone colors and all we can get are boring black or purple phones in Canada.
  • Gotta love it!
  • I have yet to see these on TV.  Anyone else?
    So far I have not seen too much activity on TV for WP8.  I see the Gwen Stephani commercial about everyday, but not much else.  I think I have seen one other WP8 commercial on TV since it's release.
  • I see the carrier WP commercials on ESPN and Big 10 network all the time.
  • I don't have cable so can't speak to that but I've seen plenty of MS commercials on Hulu Plus.
  • They're all over Hulu plus. And I keep seeing Spotify and tune in radio on the wp8 phones in the ads and proceed to get annoyed.
  • Watch the Walking Dead.  Windows Phone and surface at every commercial break.
    I need the naughty/nice live tiles for my kids.
  • WP8 commercials I've seen:
    The individuals commercial
    Gwen Stefani and jessica alba
    Verizon's 822 commercial
    Will "what's his name" commercial
    Cam Newton commercial
    And all were aired at different times of the day on different channels.
  • I don't think these are aimed at kids as much as nostalgic adults
  • lol, =P
    *sigh* =(
