Microsoft – Epic Fail.

Holy mother of awkward batman. This is the worst thing I’ve ever seen. I struggled through it, though I really wanted to turn it off every time they shared a cosy group laugh. Come on Microsoft, surely you have one of the biggest marketing budgets in the world. Four mismatched actors in carefully complementing shirts in the most staged video I’ve ever seen? It’s just nauseating! Maybe you’ve heard of viral marketing? You can’t force it. If your product is that good, people will talk about it and show their friends. Trying to get users to host launch parties for your new product in their homes is just lame. Lame lame lame. Get new marketing guys.

PS – I’m free.
