“Windows 8 is Coming Soon,” the 31-second video opens with a countdown that starts from 10, but ends at eight — alluding to the name of Window’s latest operating system. Naturally, images of the number, as well as the OS’ touch-centric interface, dominate the ad.


A tagline, “WIndows reimagined,” shows up near the end of the video, and references the fact that Windows 8 is Windows’ most radical redesign in recent memory. That is followed shortly by “10. 26. 12,” its official launch date. Eagles of Death Metal’s “Only Want You” provides the ad’s soundtrack.
