Microsoft's First Ad For Bing

The good news is that contrary to expectations, it doesn’t just have the bing! sound over and over and over again, which is kind of what we were expecting. On the other hand, it tries to connect search to the financial crisis, and makes some points about solving search overload, which was never the problem.
