This is a 3 minute and 1 second ad for the Microsoft Surface tablet; nothing more, nothing less.

Story (1): They don't speak so let's face it, there is no story.

Art (10): Everything you'd expect from Ghost In The Shell plus some serious polish.

Sound (10): Music and sound effects, no speech. Full 3d surround sound.

Character (10): The major is in this short, who else do you need?

Enjoyment (7): I always like seeing anything that has to do with Ghost In The Shell. I won't be buying a Microsoft Surface though.

Overall (9): It's a short, it's Ghost In The Shell.

It's shameless advertising for the Windows Surface RT.

The commercial is completely ridiculous when you take into account that they're cyborgs who have no need for tablets and that this tablet would be around 15 years old in the timeline of the story.

That being said, it did a great job of pumping up excitement before the OVAs started coming out. The animation is incredible. The music and sound effects greatly compliment the commercial. The action scenes are ridiculously over the top.

It may be a downright-silly commercial but it sure is exciting to watch.
