Last week in Friday Flick Find we looked at DIY Virtual Reality goggles and the week before then we saw a “I’m a PC and I’m a Mac”-ad from Apple where they bash on Microsoft for their broken promises in their Windows releases. This week, we’re back at another Windows 7 video.
According to PC World, there has been doubts whether or not this Windows 7 Launch Party video was a joke – apparently it was not, unfortunately. Microsoft was even prepared to ship balloons and other PR stuff to PC users in countries such as USA, France and United Kingdom, to celebrate the Windows 7 launch.
The video is so bad, that I will show you the parody first. Then I’ll let you decide if you want to spend 6 minutes of your life (which you will never get back), watching the Windows 7 Launch Party video. Yes, I wasted the 6 minutes watching the video and I’m flabbergasted that I actually watched it to the end (but I had to, otherwise I couldn’t post it here!). At least I learned a few things on how to throw a party – though I doubt I will ever use any of them.
Parody video first… this one will teach you something about torrents too!
The original Windows 7 launch party video…
Notice at around 1 minute in, a guy saying “call customer service if you have any questions”…. is this normal for such videos or is people simply not able to think by themselves, that they can call customer service, if they have questions?
No wonder ratings were disabled for this video on YouTube.
Hey, who’s up for a late Snow Leopard launch party with an added bonus: iPhone 3GS? 😀
I’m sure we’ll hear lots more “ohhh”, “aahh” and “niiiice” than those at the Windows 7 party did!
