Tech's 5 Weirdest Celebrity Endorsements

Microsoft and Jerry Seinfeld

Funnyman Jerry Seinfeld joined forces with erstwhile Microsoft chief Bill Gates in 2008 for a series of TV ads as the software giant touted its Vista OS and attempted to combat Apple's Mac vs. PC ads.

The first ad, which aired in September 2008, showed Seinfeld helping Gates shop in a discount shoe store. "Are they ever going to come out with something that will make our computers moist and chewy like cakes so that we can eat them while we're working?," asks the comedian, at one point.

Reportedly paid around $10 million for his efforts, Seinfeld also starred in an ad where he and Gates attempt to reconnect with real people by sharing a house with a normal family.
