0:11 — Shiny. I get the whole Aero Glass thing, but this is just iCandy.
0:18 — Afro girl! Funky music begins.
0:20 — Superman!
0:25 — Revenues makes the chairs go spin-spin!
0:33 — You look left, you look right. Then BAM, the red guy comes out from the left and knocks you out.
0:37 — Doing the whole Matrix thing is cool, but doing it in an air-tunnel is not on.
0:43 — Everyone spin 270 degrees and walk like you knew where you were actually going.
0:52 — Crossing your arms makes all the virii and trojans go away.
0:56 — I hope someone catches the red guy. He’s awfully confident.
1:01 — Steal my laptop! Steal my laptop!
1:17 — Let’s collaborate on the smallest IKEA desk you can find.
1:27 — Must be some really groovy music to get that sort of reaction.
1:29 — I’ll change the channel, flick my hair AND rotate 360 degrees left. It’s that fun.
1:36 — Did I just see a hybrid of ballad and ice skating?
Looks like someone hired the wrong creative agency.
