Microsoft invested $8 billion in Research & Development last year and this is a
good painful example of the outcome: a girl in front of her laptop singing about Microsoft’s new song-making app Songsmith and showing her dad how great it is.
Her Macbook Pro (Duh, the Software only works on Windows PCs!) is hidden behind some floral stickers and when her dad starts singing about “glow in the dark towels”, the promo video sets new highs in absurdity and horror.
The technology might be interesting for novice musicians and for having a couple of minutes of fun but the video is simply horrible, bad, the worst commercial ever. See for yourself and tell me what you think.
