Bing Vampire Ad: Creepy, Twilight-Inspired Commercial Debuts (VIDEO)

Bing has launched a new commercial that's anything but ordinary for a search engine: the ad, promoting Microsoft's "decision engine," features vampires.

The ad's debut is timed to coincide with Halloween, as well as the upcoming release of the new Twilight movie, New Moon.

Bing explains in its blog,

With New Moon coming out soon, Halloween around the corner and the release of the new Bing TV commercial it seems like everywhere you turn these days there are pale, strikingly good looking people with fangs...yes we are talking about vampires.

Bing also says that the purpose of the ad is to "highlight specific ways Bing can help simplify your life and help you make decisions faster."

Still, is associating your brand with blood-sucking vampires such a great idea? Watch the ad below and tell us what you think.
