So I first met Jenniffer, Alice's new site co-administrator, via an e-mail conversation thread. It was apparent instantly that we had similar senses of humor when we had a good time making jokes back and forth. We eventually started talking about our lives and other such and it turned out, that while on a mini vacation, I was going to be half an hour away from where Jenniffer lived, so of course we had to get together! We met for coffee in a Starbucks and started talking about all manner of things and having a great time when she told me about these fake SPN-themed Windows 7 ads she had posted on Facebook.

For those of you who haven't seen them, in the real ads there's a person talking about a problem they have with their Windows operating system, so they talk to the people at Microsoft, and when Windows 7 comes out that exact problem is solved. Then the person says "I'm so and so and Windows 7 was my idea."
Jenniffer told me about the first two she thought up, the ones for Bobby and Sam, and they were funny! So we started brainstorming and came up with ideas for other season 5 characters, too. We decided this would be a fun article to write up and share with everyone, but Jenniffer was nervous about writing it since she really would rather focus on the technical aspects of website administration, so I said I would do the writing and stuff if she could send me an outline to work from.

When I opened her e-mail, I was pleasantly surprised to find that she'd written up these wonderful ads you'll find below. I thought they were so great that I gently (or not so gently, as she might tell you!) convinced her that she should submit these as an article. All I really did was help edit a bit, find a couple screencaps, and provide moral support. So congratulations, Jenniffer, on your first Winchester Family Business article! I'm sure everyone reading will find it just as fun as I do.

BOBBY

So there I was, trying to delete that photo of me and Crowley kissing, when it hit me. "I need a computer with simpler photo editing software!" So I told the boys at Microsoft and BOOM! Windows 7 comes out! Now I can delete any incriminating photos of me with demons! My name is Bobby Singer and Windows 7 was MY idea.



SAM

So there I was, fighting a demon I knew nothing about, when it hit me! "I need a computer that will help me with demon research!" So I told the boys at Microsoft and BOOM! Windows 7 comes out. Now I can identify twice as many demons in half the time! My name is Sam Winchester and Windows 7 was MY idea!



DEAN

So there I was, sitting in our motel room watching Sam do research, when it hit me. "This needs to be more difficult for Sam!" So I told the boys at Microsoft and BOOM! Windows Vista comes out! Now I know Sam will be overwhelmed with messages about security alerts and random computer crashes! My name is Dean Winchester and Windows Vista was MY idea.

My God, Flamey, this is awesome!!! I am not able to voice much a coherent thought, as I am still searching for my jaw, it rolled off and is now somewhere....

Isn't it great that we have Jenniffer in our team, now! So great you two could get together. We European folk can't to that with you, sigh, sniff, grrr...

Thank you and Jenniffer so much for this hilarious, mindboggling, so, so, so funny stuff!!! Hellatus? Pah, anyone afraid of that with stuff like this?

Lots of love, Jas

Yeah, Jenniffer did a great job with these, didn't she, Jas? Really fun stuff. It was cool to be able to collaborate with her on this, so I'm glad you like it!

Anene, I like the Michael one, too. He is such a diva! That's a perfect way to put it.

Jenniffer, welcome aboard!!! I'm glad Ardeospina forced -- uh, suggested you post these!

Thanks for more Supernatural fun (And I like these so much better than the Windows ads which cause me to mute or change the channel!)

I just about fell off my chair laughing. These were great! Totally agree about the Vista thing. So that was Dean's idea, hmmm....

These are hysterical!!! Jenniffer, thanks so much, and Ardeospina. I might have sprayed my drink across the keyboard when I saw the first one. :oops: Half the commandments, hee, Michael & Lucifer having a brat spat, and Dean, if Vista was your idea I swear I will march down to Cicero myself... Really hope we see more from you!

Have no idea where to put this comment, this arcticle seem kinda fitting - thanks so much Jennifer and Alice for the fantastic video of the week! Just what I needed this morning after another night without much sleep to get my batteries fired up. I just feel I could use some demon blood right now...
That video is really great - thanks so much for pointing it out here! Cheers and - since you're probably sleeping right now - have a good night and a great new morning! Love Jas
