Warning: this video is 6:14 in length, and is literally more painful than watching a middle school dance.
While even the most mainstream media outlets are cringing at this veritable train wreck – even a self-proclaimed “Apple-hating bigot” rips this video to shreds – there are literally hundreds of awesome comments left by the readers of the Slashdot article, though I think the Washington Post commenter mentioned in the article’s summary hits the nail on the head:
If Microsoft had been put in charge of marketing sex, the human race would have ended long ago, because no one would be caught dead doing something that uncool.
Well played, Microsoft. Well played.
This version is much better http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gyas7BrbUFY
HAHAHAHA, YES IT IS. A+
The best thing about that video was the clock on the stove. It jumps all over the place. There were actually worse takes that they did than the ones in the video
Ahahahaha, I totally missed that! AWESOME.
Yeah, I figure there were a ton of takes where they hadn’t quite warmed up their i-have-no-idea-who-you-are-but-i’m-going-to-act-like-we’re-best-friends charade. These were painful enough to watch; I shudder at the thought of how many takes were cut in the process.
SERIOUSLY, MICROSOFT? YOU MADE A F($*ING WEBSITE FOR THE LAUNCH?
Haha, yeah that’s pretty bad. Like the GT PSA commercials the past few years sometimes I wonder who watches this stuff and actually concludes: “Yes, this is awesome. We should totally show this to the public.”
If only you could see the stuf they show on the inside… *shudders*
No thanks, this was painful enough to watch.
Ack, I think WordPress ate my comment to this post 😉
Well, I was pointing out my bemused disgust along with everyone else.
