Microsoft deems Apple's iPads kiddie tablets in hilarious new Surface Go ad

Surface Go

Take, for example, a new Microsoft ad for the Surface Go, which takes a few nice jabs at the iPad.

Microsoft's reimagining of the comical Randy Brooks-written lyrics include the little girl's pleas for a Surface Go over an iPad, which may have been fine when the commercial's charismatic star was six, but now she's ten.

The ad, which is an amusing musical adaptation of 'Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer,' points out the iPad Pro's limitations when it comes to the tablet-laptop hybrid device acting as a comprehensive Mac or Windows 10 device replacement. "My dreams are big, so I need a real computer to do all the wonderful things I know I can". The real computer will help her become the smartest version of herself.

Floyd Mayweather Sr’s Reaction To Wilder vs Fury Decision Says It All
"I am going out to LA and we will talk (with Wilder's representatives) this week". You know, it was a great fight and the buildup is already starting right now.

Just like Apple's somewhat controversial "What is a Computer" ad for the iPad Pro, Microsoft's 2018 Holiday Ad for the Surface Go employs the assistance of a young girl to get its message across.

"Grandma don't go out and buy an iPad", the girl sings. Indeed, the only activity mentioned in the commercial is coding, which one can do on an iPad.

Apple really annoyed the snot out of people around this time a year ago with its condescending and downright annoying commercial for the iPad. The company is obviously taking shots at Apple's "what's a computer?" campaign for the iPad Pro, after all.
