Microsoft Vomits New Internet Explorer 8 TV Spot

We’ve reported on a lot of the advertisements from the likes of Apple, Microsoft and Intel but none of them have made us feel physically ill. The following video is not for those burdened with a weak stomach.

For those of you who'd prefer not to watch, the commercial is an attempt to highlight the advantages of private browsing, one of the features offered with IE8. In summary, a woman borrows her husband's laptop and manages to send herself to a site so disgusting and displeasing to the eye that it makes her puke.

Just when you think it couldn't get any worse, enter Dean Cain -- an older, chubbier Dean Cain than most of us would remember. He talks about some stuff and private browsing but really, I wasn't even listening because I was too busy watching the woman in the background toss her cookies, again. On her husband. In total, the lady throws up three times. Not yet clear if the second and third time were Dean Cain related.

Watch the ad below and let us know what you think.

O.M.G.I.G.P. - IE8
