The man behind Microsoft’s infamous anti-Google “Scroogled” ads is leaving the company, it was announced Wednesday.

Scroogled.com, which served as the website for the multi-million dollar ad campaign that spanned over the last few years, became inactive earlier this year. But plenty of the spots, which Mark Penn had a hand in making, still live on YouTube.

Before joining Microsoft, Penn was an operative for Bill and Hillary Clinton.
