New Microsoft internal spoof video leaks

By Tom Warren, on 9th Aug 11 9:11 am with 27 Comments

A new Microsoft internal spoof video emerged on Tuesday.

The video features Microsoft’s senior management team:

The video is a spoof showing that Micorsoft’s executives are ordinary folk who travel to work in a Mini Cooper S. Lees, Microsoft’s Windows Phone chief, is seen shouting at a fellow colleague. “You should have a Windows Phone, I gave you a Windows Phone,” he shouts at a colleague who is seen using an iPhone in the spoof video. Long Zheng spotted the video and notes that the group also discusses TV shows and Google. The team drive by Google and DelBene is heard saying “I love passing Google.”

It’s unclear why the video was created or its exact purpose but it follows a similar internal video named “Gmail Man.” Both videos were shown to Microsoft employees at a recent internal only conference in mid-July.

    Hmm…would I marry Steve Jobs or Larry Page? Now that is a brain teaser.

      Steve. I don’t mind Apple, but I absolutely despise Google.

    • Grannyville7989

      Why do you dislike Google? Just out of curiosity.

      I could give you some examples;

      Google feels that they can shamelessly copy something, disregarding IP, then act surprised when they get sued, and come crying to the public.

      And like with Groupon and Yelp and SkyHook, if companies don’t let Google buy them out, Google spends millions to destroy their businesses. It does also not help that Google comes across as an arrogant company.

      These are some, but not all reasons why I despise Google. 

      Plus, Apple has more talent than Google ever has. Steve Jobs is an genius, Larry Page? Not so much.

      Google started by giving the impression that they were the “good guys”. No ads on the search screen, wow! They are the “jack of all trades, and masters of NOTHING but search.” EVERYTHING they do is intended to drive more traffic back to Google.com. I love the mapping and Google earth thing. I wish they would concentrate on that stuff. But the Gmail and Google apps have lulled people into thinking that they are on not just on par with MS Office, but somehow better. Hate MS all you want but MS Office is so far and above the Google stuff it’s not even a contest. And now the podcast elite can be compared to the media elite of political fame in that it’s all Google and Apple all the time, and MS is some kind of idiot that has a hard time keeping up with the pack. NOT REALITY.

      So now you have Google doing the EXACT SAME THING that got MS into trouble with the US Govt. for. Giving away a mobile OS for FREE (Internet Explorer?), so as to gain marketshare just because they have so much money, they can. Well MS got in to a lot of trouble for that behavior, and I guess it’s ok for Google. It’s ok with me, I just don’t like the double standard.

      Microsoft is a great company that has made alot of mistakes in the past and works harder than anyone to improve themselves. Google hasn’t yet attained that with me, but I will give anyone a chance. Lets hope in ten years both Apple and Google are doing good things with all that money, instead of just generating more and hoarding it.

      Also, remember, Google is giving away the mobile OS that contains the IP of others (regardless of how you feel about patent law as it is. Bottom line: it’s the current law).  At least MS was giving away a product they owned. :)

      With the exception of some random YouTube that gets sent to me, I am 100% Google free.  Google is not the “good guy” any more.  They have more evil than Apple and Microsoft combined.

    I love how they made the British guy take 2 mints, and gave the Chinese guy as many “L’s” and “R’s” as possible.  Hilarious.

    The video is a spoof showing that Micorsoft’s…
    A misspell.

    Unclear? It’s pretty obvious this is a fun “Hey, everybody! Carpool!” video. I’ve never been to the campus but I’ve heard MS podcasters complain about the traffic multiple times.

    This is not innovation…

      Sure it is! I mean they have to get to work to be able to innovate in the first place.  Every journey begins with the first step. :)
