Right on the heels of a very successful Google I/O conference during which Google has shows on stage that Chrome was becoming as good on mobile as it is on desktop, the company also launched a new television ad that I’ve seen a couple of time on live TV since. It is true that with 750M active users, it’s hard to argue that Chrome isn’t experiencing a meteoric rise. However, shortly after the new ad came out, Microsoft has allegedly build a spoof that capitalizes on what many end-users think: that everything Google does is used to spy on us, in order to sell more ads.
The result is a well-orchestrated “internal” video that was most likely also designed to leak to the larger public. Above, you have the original Google Ad, and below, the Microsoft spoof. What do you think?
