It’s no secret Microsoft loves comparing some of its products with Apple. The company has long been comparing Surface devices with MacBooks, and some of those comparisons were actually pretty good. Microsoft even had a number of ads comparing Surface devices with MacBook devices, with some of those advertisements being pretty bearable.
But the latest Surface ad comparing the Surface Laptop 2 with a MacBook Air is probably the lamest thing I have seen in a long time. And that’s probably the reason why Microsoft hasn’t officially published the ad, which was leaked by WalkingCat on Twitter.
Here’s how it goes: Microsoft got a guy called Mac Book and asked him which laptop is faster, which one lasts longer, and which one has a better touch screen. The joke with the last one is, of course, the MacBook not having a touch screen at all.

The ad ends with Mac Book saying “You should get a Surface. Trust me. I’m Mac Book”. Yeah, ugh.
