Microsoft is dipping into the nostalgia to promote Windows Phone this holiday season. A new ad features Bumbles the Abominable Snowman from the classic Christmas special Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer. In the ad Bumbles is speed dating and using his Windows Phone to get pointers from his friends. It shows off how you can get valuable information right from the Start screen without launching any apps.
The commercial is cute and will bring back memories for anyone that enjoyed this Christmas classic as a kid. Hopefully the idea of Bumbles going on a date with a doll doesn’t ruin anyone’s childhood. Just make sure you remember the one thing about Bumbles: Bumbles bounce!
