imageWe have already seen Jessica Alba and Holly Willoughby starting in Windows Phone 8 marketing.

Now UK tabloid The Sun reports that we could see luminaries like Jay-Z and Gwen Stefani, and other popular UK figures such as James Corden selling the new OS.

A UK source said about James Corden:

“Since James picked up his Tony Award in America for the hit Broadway show One Man, Two Guv’nors, his agent’s phone hasn’t stopped ringing.

“Now Microsoft have just come in with big bucks to get him on board to promote their new Windows phone.

“He filmed an advert for them in London last week where he fiddles with his smartphone and plays with apps. He spent most of the time playing Xbox games on the new phone.”

The ad will hit the airwaves on Monday and will run in prime time slots for 6 months.

In many ways the ads emulate Apple’s iPhone ads which features stars like Zooey Deschanel. Hopefully Jay Z and Gwen Stefani will hit a similar high note.
