Internal Microsoft videos just aren’t what they used to be with Utopian technologies and eye-candy special effects. This internal promotional video for Windows Vista Service Pack 1 was apparently ‘leaked‘ by an unflattered employee who bluntly called it “stupid”. For those who doubt it’s authenticity (and I don’t blame you), Kevin Turner, Microsoft’s Chief Operating Officer makes a pretty short but lasting appearance. (via Channel9 forums).
Update: CNET’s Charles Cooper claims the video is a spoof and I wouldn’t dispute that (but others have been saying its not a spoof), but regardless Microsoft spoofs have been in the past funnier and more blunt, for example the oPhone and redesigning the iPod packaging. This misses the mark.
