Here I was, thinking that Microsoft's attempt at a viral video marketing campaign for Windows 7 a couple weeks ago was the worst thing I'd ever seen, but ah! Not true!
THIS is Microsoft's worst marketing video I've ever seen.
Someone actually wrote this! If you don't feel like listening to crappy mid-90's sitcom dialogue combined with a Windows '95 tutorial for ten minutes, here's my favorite snippet:
Lady: Now let's load up the task bar; I'll show you what it does.
Jennifer Aniston: Task bar? Is that anything like a Snicker's bar? Does that have nougat?
Matthew Perry: What is nougat, does anybody know that?
[insert Seinfeld bass riff]
Matthew Perry is really at the height of his Chandler-ness in this video– it's intense.
And Jennifer Aniston too!? I'm so excited I'm going to go get "The Rachel" and avoid buying anything Microsoft makes for the rest of my life.
Thanks Bill Gates!
