Now That's What I Call A Great Commercial

If you're like me, you use commercial breaks during your favorite TV shows to run to the kitchen to refill your bowl of ice cream.

Or, you know, do some sit-ups.

Whichever you prefer...

It takes a lot for a commercial to get me to stay put on the couch—so I'm giving a huge thumbs up and a giant, standing-up-from-my-couch-cushions high five to Jon M. Chu, who directed the killer new Microsoft commercial.

You'll see plenty of familiar faces in the commercial, including Alex Wong and Kayla Radomski.

Plus, the star of this minute-long spot is Daniel "Cloud" Campos, one of my favorite dancers!

As is to be expected from director extraordinaire Chu, the Microsoft ad is very movement-heavy. The dancers are seen twirling, spinning, swapping and playing with their Microsoft Surface computers.

I want to watch this commercial over and over again.

And then, sure, maybe I'll check out the Microsoft Surface.

Good dancing = I'm sold!
