Boy band sings praises of Windows 7
'I've seen you in my dreams, I love you so much...'
The world is awaiting with tremulous expectation the forthcoming Professional Developers [sic] Conference, aka PDC2008, which Microsoft has dubbed an event "so hot, the t-shirts caught on fire!"
Crikey. PDC2008 attendees will apparently walk away with a 160-gig hard drive loaded with Windows 7, and what better way to celebrate this sensational act of computing charity than with a promotional video? Ladies and gentlemen, we give you 4 Softies and a Pizza Guy...
Well, my original intention was to write a balanced preview of PDC 2008, but I made the mistake of watching the video twice. So, if you'll excuse me, I'm off for a valium washed down with a very stiff brandy followed by a lie down in the Vulture Central darkened chill-out room. ®
Who needs video?
Ha ha ha haaeeeaaargh!.. ow.. medic!
I'm so glad I haven't eaten yet today. It's going to take a few pints of strong ale to clear that nightmare from my mind.
There truly are some things that you can never un-see.
Tux, cos GNU/Linux gains ground on it's merits. Not on crappy 2nd rate ads like that.
Copycat Piss Take
It's supposed to be an ironic post modern nudge and wink type video.
The trouble is, that only works for really obscure things like PCR amplification machines:
It doesn't work for already nerdy crap that everybody uses (has to use), from a company that everybody loathes for "borrowing" ideas from others and making expensive pathetic commercials.
Those CDs don't look very legit...
Brilliant - Loved it . . .
. . . because it's of the best attempts ever at encouraging people to get absolutely blotto on vallium and stiff brandies. Thanks for the tip Lester (you must have been in a bad way to have watched it twice).
It should contain a health warning –
‘Danger, watching this may seriously affect your sanity’
