shocking - from microsoft

I had the misfortune to stumble upon this one today. It's a long format ad by Microsoft.

I must admit, I watched the whole thing just to figure out whether they were kidding or not. I don't think they were.

Now, I can respect terrible advertising that's so bad it's good. Sort of a Mentos thing. But this doesn't achieve that level of badness. It's just shocking.

So, is it brilliant, in that I'm intrigued and actually writing about it. I don't think so, but perhaps it is.

I'm so confused.

p.s. I actually liked the Seinfeld / Gates spots and thought they had potential if they stuck to it.
