This seems like a weird ad campaign, coming as it does on the heels of the Team America DVD release, but I have to give Dell some kudos for style and panache for this commercial.  It’s a Gerry Anderson-style superteam of nerds*!

*lest anyone think I’m being mean, I’ll disclose that I spent an hour and a half reading all the manuals for my new cell phone.  Yup, I’m that nerd.

    I liked how the puppets were charicatures of the company founders.

    I thought that was particularly clever as well.  Even better is the idea that each one of those founders probably signed off on it.

    Though I found it interesting that Bill Gates is in the back of the group.
