Microsoft has enlisted the reality-television series "Pawn Stars" in its ongoing campaign to bash rival Google.

An online video ad released Tuesday mimics the plot set up of "Pawn Stars," which features people toting precious or odd objects for appraisal at a Las Vegas pawn shop. In Microsoft's fictional telling, a woman is trying to trade in a Chromebook, a no-frills laptop powered by Google software.

"The only problem with Microsoft is they just have no taste, they have absolutely no taste."

They have an unshakable domination on the Desktop, in mobile their seeing increased success, and Office is crushing Google's offerings especially Office365.

Office is especially hilarious though, Microsoft was able to reinvent a new business model, turn it into a two billion dollar business, and laugh all the way to the bank before Google even knew what happened.
