You can’t pawn your Chromebook for a ticket to Hollywood

Microsoft’s Scroogled campaign is divisive to say the least. Its drawn equal amounts of criticism and praise on the internet. Some call it cheap and tacky, while others don’t mind the campaign that highlights Google’s advertising products. Either way, the latest ad with stars from the reality show Pawn Stars highlights the dangers of the Google Chromebook and doesn’t stop being polarizing.

Here we see a lady trying to pawn her Google Chromebook so she can go to Hollywood. What did we learn? That buying a Google Chromebook won’t get you to Hollywood. It’s not a bad ad if you’re fans of the show, but we still can’t help feeling that the Scroogled campaign is a bit tired at this point.
