Microsoft Releases First Official Windows 8 Commercial

Microsoft Releases First Official Windows 8 Commercial

With Windows 8's launch date just ten days away, the countdown is officially underway with Microsoft rolling out its first 30 second commercial for the new OS.

Featuring the musical stylings of the Eagles of Death Metal ("Only Want You"), the commercial starts with a space shuttle-style countdown, strategically stopping and repeating 'eight' for the rest of the ad. Between the various repeating 'eights', the commercial shows off the versatility of the new OS, by featuring elements of Windows 8's Modern UI as well as a multitude of touchscreen apps on various devices, including laptops, desktops, and tablets, as well as the happy and enthusiastic people using them.

The ad also puts up the tagline "Windows Reimagined" which we've seen used in the past to promote the radical new OS and ends with a 10.26.2012 date line, the day of the Windows 8 launch.
