Funny commercial by Microsoft, showing Apple and Samsung lovers starting a fight in the middle of a marriage. In the end you see two Nokia Lumia users having fun by watching the fights. Curious whether Apple and/or Samsung will counter attack..
If you grew up in the nineties as a kid, you will love this video. It is nostalgic and shows every trend you had as a kid back then. The commercial ends with “Your future was bright, you grew up. So did we”.
Microsoft has started its UK marketing activity for its new Windows 8 operating system by installing a giant slide in the Bluewater shopping centre, giving shoppers an alternative to using the stairs and presenting Windows 8 as ‘fast and fun’. Every slider had their picture taken as they went down the slide, received a photo print of themselves and a copy was sent to their mobile.
Today we’ve ran across a banned commercial for Xbox. The concept behind this ad is pretty awesome, we’re even asking ourselves the question if it should ever been banned in the first place? Well, banned or not, at least you can enjoy it here with us.
Music Band Gorillaz launched Microsoft’s Beta version of Internet Explorer 9. Murdoc from Gorillaz presents the new IE version in this animated video. Part of it takes place on Plastic Beach, which is the name of their new album.
A couple of days ago Bert posted a viral called ‘Megawoosh’. First of all he thought it was a viral for ‘Projectbuero Kammerl’. They’ve built the most unusual waterslide in the world, and Bruno Kammerl was looking for investors to expand the Megaswoosh project. Check the video below where he explains the philosophy behind his projects.
The video became an enormous succes on the internet, since the launch on the 3d of August the video has already been watched 1,4 million times according to viraltracker. That’s an amazing result. On August 8th it was viewed 275000 times. Today views are starting to decrease, but it’s still doing good!
Offcourse everybody started to realize there is something fishy about this project. Like Bert said: “real or not, I can’t tell”. Some days later everybody concluded this video was a FAKE!
But who made it? Where’s the company who can take credit for this one?
On August 6th the official Megawoosh website changed…. and on top of the website we could all see this logo:
This video is actually an ad for Microsoft Office Project 2007. That’s a pretty funny catch, don’t you think?
The last years I’ve heard a lot of people screaming on their blogs and websites that viral doesn’t work anymore. Well I think Microsoft proved them wrong. Hopefully though they wil keep it with this good one, and don’t screw it with a series of bad virals.
