Plot / Description

"Windows 8: Artist" 
This commercial shows a bored little girl. Her mother grabs the touchscreen monitor from her new Windows 8 computer and puts it on the little girl's artist easel. The girl then "paints" pictures on the touch device like it's a painting canvas. She picks a photo from the image library, and then tries to copy it in her painting app. She finishes off the face with a big red smile, and her mom prints the picture and pins it to the wall. Next she paints a rainbow, a falling star, the Earth, and a flower all while wearing costumes such as a Viking helmet, an owl hat, and a flower headband. While she's painting, the phone rings, and she answers it to talk to her dad right on the computer through Skype. She shows her dad her new pictures through the webcam (including one of him that she holds up-side-down). At the end, she spins around while holding the picture of her father.


I say the same thing twice, I'm awkward when I speak 
Ain't got the perfect smile, don't turn heads on my street 
Trying to be a superstar like everybody else 
But being myself is something I do well 
Express yourself 
Express yourself 
Aw, do it
